Passionate for Pewter


In the last couple of months I have become passionate again for pewter. I have collected it for years, stuff but recently fell in love with it again. While shopping for Carole’s Country Store, drugstore I came across this early pewter plate. It had my husband’s initials on it, so I couldn’t resist buying it. Since then, and before, I have purchased and sold several early pieces of pewter in my store, so I know you enjoy it as much as I do.


Old pewter is NOT something you want to eat or drink from, it’s just nice to look at.


I wanted to use it, so I found a company that makes pewter IN THE UNITED STATES!! Yes, that’s right, in the United States, so I ordered some. It was delivered yesterday. It’s beautiful. Each piece is made from an antique mold. You can see the little imperfections, just like the originals. I made vegetable soup for dinner last night and I used the Colonial soup spoon. I’m hooked! I loved it.


There are lots of different sizes and shapes of spoons. All of them are wonderful.


I love the wine corks, and the wine too. LOL-This eagle is so detailed.


The plates and goblets are beautiful too.


I have so much more to show you, and I want to tell you more about this pewter, but I’ll save that for my next post. I need to go and start photographing for the store. I can’t wait for you to see. I know you are going to love it! One of these days I want to talk about stenciling too, another colonial art form, but until next time-
Happy day

    Hi Christe’, the spoon is so fun and there are about 9 more, all different, a couple of forks too. The Pewter Store is open, but i still need to photograph all the spoons.

    I do wish I knew for sure about eating off of ironstone and blue willow. I have an old blue willow bowl. It’s lovely but I have never eaten off of it. I didn’ t know you shouldn’t eat from yellowware. I am not sure that is true. If anyone else knows, please let us know too.
    thanks for the question. I wish I could have been more helpful.

    I love all your pewter and share your passion! I have a few pieces, not nearly what I would like. I’ll be visiting your store. Re: yellowware and blue willow, as long as it is glazed and not cracked the yellowware is ok. The blue willow is fine.
    I noted you store in my blog. My husband bought the copper measuring cups for me for Christmas. I love them. Now I would like to fine some primitive hooks to hang the from the edge of a shelf. Any ideas on where I should look?
    Your home is lovely!

    Hi Debbie. Oh, so you’re the Debbie that owns those copper measures. I am so glad you love them. What a sweet thing for your husband to do. Finding old hooks the right size for them won’t be easy, but I think that’s part of the fun of looking for something specific. It’s part of “the hunt”, which is always fun when you find just the right thing! Good luck. I’ll keep my eye peeled too.
