Caption

Pewter invalid feeder or 'pap boat' dating from eighteenth century England. These were commonly used to assist with feeding the infirm. The vessel would be filled with 'pap' (a softened mixture of breadcrumbs, flour, rice or barley mixed with liquids such as broth, milk or water) which would be delivered to the patients mouth via the extended 'lip'. This piece bares the makers name, 'Dent'.
