How can I identify John Somers pewter?

I collect pewter pieces and would like to add John Somers pieces to my collection.

There will be three shields in a row somewhere on the piece, with JS in the first, an X with two dots on either side in the second, and MG in the third.

In addition to what was stated by vivi55 you may see an A stamped below the 3 shields. This means the piece was given a distressed finish at the factory.  add a comment

Jon Somers was originally English, but left and set up a workshop in Brazil in 1975. This enterprise is still in operation. The definitive marking would be "Jon Somers" stamped on the underside of the piece.
