Huge pewter "bishop's hat" charger (wide-rimmed plate), late 1600s, with unidentified maker's mark. 7 lb, 2 oz, 19" in diameter. This has got to be the biggest plate we've ever seen! The slightly raised rim measures 5" wide, leaving a relatively small 8-1/2" center, all very smooth and nearly glossy, with triangular maker's mark in center of rim (this mark being the origin of the piece's nickname), a little wavy overall but completely intact and impressively large.
