We offer pewter from 2 manufacturerers:
Woodbury Pewter made in Connecticut, USA and Mextizo Pewter made in San Miguel, Mexico
Woodbury Pewterers was founded in 1952, in the town of Woodbury, Ct. by Ruth Holbrook and Lee R. Titcomb. The original location was a small blacksmith shop and in 1967, the business was re-located to its current location. Each piece of Woodbury Pewter is hand-crafted from the highest quality pewter using many of the same methods and tools that were used in the 18th & 19th centuries. Woodbury Pewter still remains a “family owned and operated” business with several second and third generation employees.
