Show and Tell Friday ~ Pewter

When Dear and I were engaged we were really attracted to pewter items. We collected some pieces while we were in England in 1973 and l974 and then registered for pewter items for wedding gifts.

 

This Pewter Hurricane Lamp was a wedding gift along with this Platter and Bowl. So we’ve been using these gifts for over 32 years.

 

To see more Show and Tell head over to Kelli’s at There’s No Place Like Home.

Photobucket is holding hundreds of my photos hostage and that’s why you don’t see the original photos on this post.

  4. Hi Ellen 🙂 These are marvelous! My particular favorite is the coffee server. I can just picture it on a lovely table outside in the evening. Pewter just has the lovliest glow about it in the candlelight. Thanks for sharing! Blessings! Q

  5. Cool–they used to make pewter things in my home town of Somers, CT. I used to have something made of pewter–but so many moves and years later it is gone!! Thanks for showing your stuff!!
