Roy Rodriguez collects early American pewter. He has come across a small beaker engraved as follows:
“Nellie M. Barrett Woodford, loomer, Deering, Maine, Feb. 7th, 1872″
The three inch beaker does not carry the name of the maker, but it probably was made in Connecticut and may be a marriage cup.
Mr. Rodriguez is interested in locating descendants. If you have additional information, please contact me so I can put the two of you in touch!
