PEWTER COLLECTING

Collectors can specialise in perhaps an area or town of production, a maker by name, or a type of pewter product. It is possible to collect Pewter made from particular locations, apart from those above there are nice collections possible of pewter from Bristol, South West England such as Devon, Bewdley (Gloucester region), Birmingham, Norfolk and South East England, Penrith, Newcastle, Gateshead Tyne and Wear (see Abbot selection in this section of the Web site).

Pub Pewter is collected with names of Public Houses and other engraving for owners and users. Also beakers, and all manner of Mug or Tankard styles. Measures especially used to prove licensees mugs capacity are found some with brass or pewter heavy top rims.

Plates can be collected of all sizes say from 5" – 28" (though the extremes are scarcer and 8" – 18" regularly found) and types (see the rims shown under Pewter Styles and datings). Dishes and Bowls. Many with decoration of one sort or another such as Wrigglework, Engravings, Armorials, Ownership markings

Smallwares such as spices, salts, salt and pepper pots, funnels, medicinal pewter, candlesticks, snuff boxes, barbers bowls, tea caddies, card trays, porringers, spoons, inkwells, strawberry dishes, spoons can all be collected.

W. S. Gilbert expressed it perfectly (and this in 1889)- "The end is easily foretold, when every blessed thing you hold, is made of silver or of gold, you long for simple pewter"
