The Large Jones Porringer is a reproduction of one made in the late 18th century by Providence, Rhode Island pewterer, Gershom Jones, circa 1774 -1809. This was the first piece my father reproduced years ago. It is also special because I grew up in Providence.
This type of handle is referred to as a flower handle and it is a beautiful and classic form. In addition to the large, we also make the Medium and Small Jones Porringers with bowl diameters of 4.25″ and 3.5″ respectively. The small is an excellent choice for babies and the medium an excellent choice for young children as the handles are quite sturdy.
