This is a wonderful example of an antique American Heart Handle Porringer. To date, no maker has been assigned with certainty to these 19th century porringers. Some have an “R” cast on the underside of the handle leading some to speculate that R. Lee, or R. Gleason might be the maker. The jury is still out. This example is in fine condition and has great turning lines on the base as well as a strong linen mark on the inside of the bowl.
