Communion bread plates

These pewter communion bread plates are from St Paul's Episcopal Chapel in York Place in Edinburgh. They were made in 1821 by William Scott, a pewterer based in Edinburgh's West Bow.

The plates have a shallow bowl and are inscribed on the rim `St Paul's Chapel York Place 1821'.

There were at least two pewterers called William Scott working in the West Bow in Edinburgh in the late 18th and early 19th century.
