The Flat lidded Pint Tankard is same as the Dome Lidded Pint Tankard, with a low, flat lid. A wonderful form and also a numbered series.

New Design!

A friend who is a customer asked me to make him a Pint Tulip Tankard a long time ago. He checks in from time to time to see how I’ve progressed with his request. I finally created a piece which I think he’ll enjoy looking at and enjoy using. This is a brand new design, combining the graceful lines of the tulip mug with a tankard lid.

Porringers

Photo of Medium Jones Porringer
Price: $75

The Medium Jones Porringer is a reproduction of one made in the late 18th century by Providence, Rhode Island pewterer, Gershom Jones, circa 1774 -1809. This was the first piece my father reproduced years ago. It is also special to me, because I grew up in Providence.

This type of handle is referred to as a flower handle and it is a beautiful and classic form. In addition to the large,...

Photo of  J. Bassett Porringer
Price: $95

I introduced the John Bassett Porringer several years ago. John Bassett was active in New York City circa 1720 – 1761, and surviving examples of his work today are very rare. His sons Francis and Frederick were also skilled pewterers who produced excellent wares.

This Bassett Porringer has a 5.25″ (pint) bowl with two incised lines on the rim and an “Old English” type handle. Another...

Photo of  Large Melville Porringer
Price: $95

The Melville Porringers are reproductions of ones made in Newport, Rhode Island in the 18th century by David Melville, circa 1755–1793. This kind of handle is referred to as the Solid, Rhode Island type. I enjoy the simplicity of the handle design and it is perhaps the strongest handle I make. Original examples of this type of porringer are scarce.

Photo of  Large Lee Basin Porringer
Price: $95

The Lee Basin Porringer is the largest in our product line with a bowl that measures 6″ in diameter. The Basin Bowl type has a flat bottom, a slightly tapered side, and a narrow, flared rim. The flower handle design on the Lee Porringer is a unique form, made only by Richard Lee and Richard Lee, Jr. The handle is beautiful and balances well with the larger bowl.

Photo of  William Bradford, Jr. Porringer
Price: $95

The William Bradford, Jr. Porringer is yet another 18th century “Old English” type handle with a large (pint) bowl with two incised lines in the rim. Bradford was active in New York City between 1719- 1785, and surviving examples of this man’s work are rare. This is one of my favorite porringer handles.

Photo of  Small Heart Handle Porringer
Price: $60

The Small Heart Handle Porringer is a reproduction of a late 18th, early 19th century American piece whose exact maker has yet to be identified. The handle is sweet with its three hearts and crescent moon apertures. This is a very popular baby gift!

Photo of  Dolphin Handle Basin Porringer
Price: $95

The Dolphin Handle Basin Bowl Porringer is another classic style which I love. It was inspired by an original example made by Samuel Danforth, Hartford, CT , 1795 -1816. Many thanks to friend, fellow pewter enthusiast and antique pewter dealer, Wayne Hilt, for helping me create this rare handle design!

Photo of  Geometric Handle Porringer
Price: $95

Last summer, I acquired a rare 18th century geometric handle porringer at auction. I’ve waited many years to find one, and with it for inspiration, we now have our 8th different large porringer handle design!
