I’m taking a break from the travel posts to catch up on some other posts as I have recently completed several projects on my long term to-do list. One item I checked off my list was polishing and hanging the antique pewter plates that I found at an antique sale. According to the seller, they are hand hammered church plates that came from an old church in Charleston, South Carolina. They were a great price (I think $15 for all 4!!). I purchased them more than a year ago but temporarily misplaced them. Actually they were in the cabinet on top of a stack of white porcelain plates with silver edges so I thought they were more of the porcelain plates. I have searched high and low for them and finally ran across them by accident! I guess that means I have too much stuff!
The photo above is a close up so that you can see the hammer marks. I hung them on the wall between the sets of patio doors.
Now, the same photo with the plates.
They reflect a lot of light.
I used Disc Plate Hangers purchased here to hang them and I am very pleased with the outcome!
