One of five metal vessels found in he low tide area near Churston. These vessels were probably lost from a 16th century Dutch, French or Spanish ship which could have been wrecked in the area.
This pewter plate has markings on it which could help identify the maker, owner and ship. In an oval cartouche is a merchant’s mark flanked by the name ‘LOVYS TVLLIER’ and a crowned rose of flanked by illegible initials. On the back of the rim is a maker’s mark which resembles a chi-rho.
