A recent find: a London 1741 pap boat, converted to a small creamer. Based on the style of the handle and feet, would say the conversion occurred in the late 18th century. Unfortunately, the handle was applied over the maker's mark.

Doc, that's a nice bit of recycling! Pap boats must have been a dime a dozen. Good eye on catching it!
