William Will (1764 – 1798) is the Paul Revere of American pewter—patriot, soldier, and outstanding craftsmen. His pewter coffee and teapots are among the most elegant surviving American examples.
I reproduced Will’s Federal Period drum-shaped teapot several years ago with painstaking care and detail, as seen in the distinctive beaded edge work. Only a handful of original examples exist today. In 2007, one sold at auction for $47,560!
