    The marks are not very clear but I believe they read Konigsberg. Some examples that I found online also have 1790 on them and the sellers describe the pieces as 18th century. But is 1790 really the year of production?

    Or maybe it does not say Konigsberg.

    Was thinking it might be by Adrian Klingling who worked in Frankfurt ca. 1750 since he used an angel-type logo, but I can't seem to match that name with what's marked on your item. I am pewter-ignorant btw.

    I can't make out the lettering enough to tell what it says. I think??? I'm seeing ... KRLIGL... that means nothing to me. The only things I can tell you at this point, which you all ready know, is that it is European and could be from any of the following countries: Germany, Austria, Hungary or Switzerland. These countries used the word "FEIN" in one way or another on their pewter. Gee, I wish that angel was clearer. It may be holding a sword in one hand and scales in the other. There might be ??? a doe on the lower right side of the angel and a stag on the lower left side???

    > Konigsberg ... 1790 ... 1790 really the year of production<

    Believe the wavy edge on this plate would described as multiple reed.

    I've now seen the Konigsberg 1790 marked pieces. 1790 in the touchmark doesn't mean year of production. It usually means the year that particular pewter guild was founded. Sorry, I could find no help for you.

    JMHO.
    not older than 19th/ start of 20th century. 1790: the years would indicate the year of the last fixing of the content of the alloy by the city guild.
