8 Inch Diameter L.H.Vaughn Taunton, Massachusetts Pewter Bowl. This is quite old but still very usable but with the usual signs of wear for an old pewter piece which for me just adds the character to it! Weighs 1 lb 3 ounces.Lester Howard VAUGHAN, born 6 Nov 1889 and died 30 May 1961, began his metal working career at the giant Reed & Barton Silversmiths just a few blocks down the street from his home in Taunton, Massachusetts. LHV left R&B in 1915 to start his own business which began in the rear of his home on West Brittania Street. In 1921, he married Maria PARKER and the two of them became life long companions and business partners. They bought another home a short distance away on Clifton Street that became the factory with the showroom upstairs, manufacturing downstairs and a couple outbuildings for materials. (Both exist today and are used as residences.) LHV was professionally affiliated with The Society of Arts and Crafts of Boston and was elected Master Craftsman and a life member in 1918. He had one man shows at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Art Institute of Chicago and the International Trade Center in Cleveland. Long term displays were also given at the Philadelphia Art Alliance and other locations. Winning numerous gold medals for his work at various expositions, he soon began receiving private commissions for his work mostly in pewter but occasionally in sterling silver and copper. I have a price tag of $125 on this pewter bowl in the store but I am starting this out at auction for only $9.95, as I have over 300 lots of antiques, rugs, and canes arriving and I need to clear the decks. Make me an offer high enough OVER the starting bid and I shall stop the auction for you. We shall see w this goes. I have over 4,500 total positive feedbacks of which 1,313 are all RETURN CUSTOMERS so I must be doing something right by now since 1998 on eBay. I am now also a GOLD level Powerseller as of February 10th!!!!.

Our pictures may be stitched together to provide you as much information as possible. I can email a larger version of any of the images. Make me an offer high enough to whet my appetite and I will end the auction early for you. What a great addition to your collection this will make! I also have over $60,000 of inventory up for sale in my eBay Store, please check it out and either buy something or make an offer, it is all my top stuff.

All items either in my eBay Store or at 7 day auction are concurrently for sale in my Nantucket store until they receive bids. Upon receiving a bid or offer they are then removed from retail sale at the store pending the outcome of the eBay auction. We'd be happy to take additional pictures to help answer questions, the more specific the better!
