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.

Cups & Goblets

Photo of Stem Goblet
Price: $100

The Stem Goblet is a beautiful form. It’s our oldest wine goblet design and has been a favorite for many years. It’s also one of the most difficult pieces I make. The cup and the stem are extremely complex forms to shape on the metal spinning lathe. It’s the kind of work I do when no one is around to hear me shout.

Pewter Martini Goblet
Price: $110

Personal preferences aside, cocktail fanciers everywhere can agree that the martini is the classic supreme. This elegant cocktail is the Fred Astaire of mixed drinks. So when a customer asked me to design a martini goblet, I came up with several prototypes, but ultimately came back to the classic style. Like the drink itself, our Martini Goblet is long and lean, cool and sophisticated.

Photo of Footed Goblet
Price: $100

The Footed Goblet was designed as a water goblet, but could be used for wine as well. Churches also use these in their communion sets.

Photo of Baby Mug
Price: $85

The Baby Mug seems to scream “baby boy!” Fortunately, many a young lass has received this cup as well. I made the first one of these for my nephew years ago, even though his family lives in wine country of northern California.

And, if you like, we can stamp your child’s initials on the bottom of the cup.

Photo of 1.5 Ounce Jigger
Price: $25

Before Christmas 2012, a good customer asked me to make a 1.5 Ounce Jigger. Thinking this might be a good seller, I agreed to the project. Sales of these have been off the charts! So we’ve made new chucks and decided to go into production in 2013. Each Jigger has Five incised lines; two near the lip, two near the base and one on the top interior at the 1.5 oz. level. Made with extra heavy...

Photo of Baby Cup (tapered sides)
Price: $50

The Baby Cup with tapered sides has graceful lines. The scroll handle is a delicate, yet sturdy design and the rolled lip gives the young one something to gum when the teeth start sprouting.

And, if you like, we can stamp your child’s initials on the bottom of the cup.

Photo of Sonoma Goblet
Price: $100

The Sonoma Goblet is a beautiful new piece which incorporates the cup from the Leddell Chalice and the taller version of the Stem Goblet base. Here again, I’ve used existing forms and molds to come up with a new design. The Sonoma Goblet has wonderful lines and feels great in the hand. A pair of these would be a wonderful gift!

Photo of Baby Cup (straight sides)
Price: $50

The Baby Cup with straight sides is my best seller with its wide base, rolled lip, and bullet proof handle. Neither of my kids could destroy their baby cups! Two incised lines at the top and bottom add a nice decorative touch.

And, if you like, we can stamp your child’s initials on the bottom of the cup.
