The William Bradford, Jr. Porringer is yet another 18th century “Old English” type handle with a large (pint) bowl with two incised lines in the rim. Bradford was active in New York City between 1719- 1785, and surviving examples of this man’s work are rare. This is one of my favorite porringer handles.
