Born and trained in England before emigrating to America in the early 1710s, the pewterer and merchant Simon Edgell imported large amounts of pewter from England for resale in his Philadelphia shop. This dish, remarkable for its considerable size and overall pattern of hammering, is among the few surviving pieces stamped with his mark. Edgell also dealt in brass hardware and other metals.
