Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This decorative pewter bottle is not as old as it is pretending to be. This bottle was made during the heyday of antique pewter demand in the 1960s or 1970s. The decoration is completely cast after a mold and not incised. The modern oval pewter hallmark reads "fein zinn 95% etain fin", the stylized pictogram of an angel holding libra scales and two stars between the inscriptions. The use of an angel hallmark on pewter items came about through a misunderstanding. In the old days in continental europe people believed that english pewter was of superior quality. The word "english" sounds similar to "angel" in some languages, hence the hallmark "angel" appeared on pewter. During the centuries even on lead items unfortunately. Which made it necessary to make a distinction between lead and pewter. The percentage hallmarks were introduced in the 1960s or later. The estimate is based on similar items sold at auction.
