Oil Lamps & Candle Holders

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...

Photo of Pewter Capen & Molineux Tavern Lamp
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.

Short Pewter Candlesticks
Price: $190

The Short Candlesticks are 3.75” tall and are quite sturdy. The base is cast (the first in our candlestick line) as is the top socket. The overall look and balance is wonderful and the heavy weight will surprise you. Get a pair for yourself, or bookmark them as a future gift item.

Sold in pairs.

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.

Ladles & Spoons

Photo of Reproduction William III Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

I recently acquired an important early 18th century wavy-end bronze spoon mold at auction. The mold is engraved with a royal portrait on the top and a fanciful scroll pattern on the underside of the bowl.

Initially I thought it was of Queen Anne, but I’ve been talking with several pewter scholars recently and the consensus is it’s probably not a portrait of Queen Anne, but rather an...

Photo of Beaded Edge Pewter Ladle
Price: $125

The Beaded Edge Ladle was inspired by a similar type of ladle made by 18th century Philadelphia pewterer, William Will. Will’s ladle has a solid handle with no hook hole. The beaded edge on the bowl is applied as the piece is turning slowly on the lathe, just the way it was done in the 18th century. The handle is quite sturdy, and has a wonderful feel and balance in the hand.

Photo of Fiddle Handle Pewter Ladle
Price: $125

The Fiddle Handle Ladle is another classic form which was made by various pewterers. While not an exact copy of any one in particular, it embodies the best elements to create a pleasing form which feels great in one’s hand.

Photo of Pewter Gravy Ladle
Price: $75

The Gravy ladle is a scaled down version of the Fiddle Handle ladle. This handsome new ladle will be a useful addition at your table for holiday events and everyday meals. A great gift item!

Photo of Large Queen Anne Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

Both the Large and Small Queen Anne Spoons are cast from antique bronze molds which are 300 years old! I collect old pewtering tools and these may be the oldest I own. They are sometimes referred to as wavy end spoons, but we’ve always called them Queen Anne Spoons. They have a “rattail” support bracket on the underside of the bowl like most 18th century spoons. Makes a great soup spoon!
