Oil Lamps & Candle Holders

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.

Tall Pewter Candlesticks
Price: $295

The Tall Candlesticks stand 8.75” tall (the tallest in our candlestick line) and are real beauties! If you have a large dinning room table or a large fireplace mantle, these are the candlesticks for you. You’ll be impressed with the overall weight of these candlesticks as well as the height.

Sold in pairs.

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...

Photo of Push-up Pewter Candlesticks
Price: $275

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...

Photo of R. Gleason 3″ Pewter Chamberstick
Price: $125

The Gleason Chamberstick is one of my father’s earliest reproduction pieces. Somewhere in my files I actually have the original drawings he used to copy the original which was in our shop for repairs.

Customers have loved this piece from the very beginning. This original would have been made by Gleason in the 1820s before his whale oil lamp production commenced in the 1830s.

Price: $210

The Fluted Candlesticks stand a handsome and formal 8.5" tall and have a beaded edge on the socket. These tall candlesticks are a wonderful addition to the lighting line!

Ladles & Spoons

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!

Photo of Turkey Claw Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

The original Turkey Claw Spoon may actually have been made as late as 1900. My father copied and example he acquired years ago thinking it was very old. In fact, he was mistaken. But it is a wonderful spoon with the turkey claw bracket on the underside of the bowl.
