The Melville Porringers are reproductions of ones made in Newport, Rhode Island in the 18th century by David Melville, circa 1755–1793. This kind of handle is referred to as the Solid, Rhode Island type. I enjoy the simplicity of the handle design and it is perhaps the strongest handle I make. Original examples of this type of porringer are scarce.
