Pitchers, Creamers, and Vases

Photo of 6 oz. Syrup Pitcher
Price: $125

If the sale of several prototypes of my new, small (6 oz.) syrup/cream pitcher are any indication, I’d say this is going to be a popular item. A perfect gift for any occasion! Look for a companion sugar bowl sometime this winter.

Photo of Pewter Large Vase
Price: $175

I’ve had a lot of requests for a taller vase with a wider top and base. The 5th and final new design for 2011 is the Large Vase. At 8″ in height, it’s an impressive form with a gently flared top lip and 3 decorative incised lines. This is a gift you may want for yourself!

Price: $150

The Tall Vase is a popular piece. My father introduced this style to round out our vase line several years ago. The flared upper lip and wide base work well to balance the tall form.

Oil Lamps & Candle Holders

Pewter Hancock Oil Lamp
Price: $250

The Hancock Oil Lamp is a wonderful new design which I co-created with the owners of the Hancock Inn for their dining room table lighting. It is an adaptation of our Tavern Lamp, sans handle, with a longer, flared base which holds the glass chimney firmly in place.  The single brass burner produces a soft, mellow light. All lamps come with instructions, a pewter chimney extinguisher cap, and a...

Photo of Pewter Dunham Standing Lamp
Price: $250

The Dunham Standing Lamp is a beautiful piece. It is a reproduction of a 19th century whale oil lamp by Rufus Dunham, Westbrook, Maine, circa 1830s. These kinds of lamps were often used for lighting a table top, a mantel, or a candle stand.

All of our oil lamps work and produce the soft light of a by gone era. Each lamp comes with instructions and a free bottle of lamp oil.

Photo of Pewter Gleason Lace Maker’s Lamp (double)
Price: $595

The Gleason Bullseye Whale Oil Lamp is a great lighting device. The original was patented in the 1830s by Roswell Gleason, of Dorchester, Massachusetts, as a work light. These lamps are also referred to as lacemakers’ lamps.

The glass lenses magnify the light of the flame and the shade above the lens which is slightly canted, focuses the light for in close hand work, or reading. Gleason...

Price: $225

The Tavern Lamp is a reproduction of a piece made in New York City in the 1840′s by the pewter lamp making firm of Capen & Molineux. They made many different styles of oil and camphene lamps. Some surviving examples are even equipped with lard oil burners.

Our lamp has the single, taller, camphene burner and a wonderful scroll handle. This was a portable lamp that would have been...

Photo of 3 inch Pewter Candleholder
Price: $45

The 3 inch Candleholder is a modern form that I designed a few years ago. A number of my customers asked for a dish to go under their pillar candles and this design was the end result. It has sturdy, wide base and a nicely flared lip to catch any stray wax.

Photo of Pewter Gibson Candlesticks
Price: $190

The Gibson Candlesticks are an original design. I borrowed the shaft of the Gleason 3″ Chamberstick and created a base to match the curves of the shaft. These sturdy candlesticks are very popular.

Photo of R. Dunham Pewter Candlesticks
Price: $210

The R. Dunham Candlesticks are our best sellers. They are reproductions of those made in the 19th century by Westbrook, Maine pewterer, Rufus Dunham. The urn shaped shafts are among the most beautiful ever produced and their popularity in our shop today supports that claim. The shafts are hollow (“slush”) cast just like the originals, but are quite sturdy. The tall base has two decorative...

Tall and beautiful, the Push-Up Candlesticks are an original design. There is a brass rod which is attached to a platform within the socket. The rod extends down through the shaft and through the underside of the base. There a small brass knob is threaded to the rod. Atop the platform is a nickel which has been soldered in place.

I sometimes refer to these “sticks” as my Jefferson...
