Exceptional attention to detail went into the manufacture of this special pewter porringer by Potstainiers Hutois of Belgium. The ear features a money bag tied with a flowing ribbon. The ribbon bears the saying "La Fortune Aux Audacieux"; Fortune favors the brave. Inside is the profile of Louis Phillipe I and the word Francais. I cannot read the entire inscription as I did not attempt to polish. The backside has the original red paper label of Les Postainiers Hutois of Belgium. On the left is an image of a worker pouring a liquid, possibly hot pewter, over the letters GF on a shield. On the right side is the image of a castle with T to its left and F to its right. The bowl measures 2 5/8 inches across. With the ear, the piece measures 3 7/8 inches. The ear measures 1 7/8 inches across at its widest point. This exceptionally well-made pewter porringer is dull from aging, though the age is unknown to this seller.
