Jon Gibson at the Shop Door
A Family Tradition

Gibson Pewter was founded in 1966 by Raymond Gibson and run as a seasonal family “cottage” business in the picturesque historic hilltop village of Hillsborough Center, N.H. for more than 20 years.

Today, second-generation pewterer, Jonathan Gibson carries on the craft year-round in the same 200 year old barn where he apprenticed as a young boy. Jon is a state juried member of the League of N.H. Craftsmen and has been recognized by Early American Life Magazine as one of Americas 200 top traditional craftsmen since 1992.

Over 100 pieces of traditional and contemporary designs are available for sale. Each lead-free piece is made with hands-on care, whether cast, hammered, or spun. The Gibson Fruit Bowl and Wood-grain Beaker were the only pieces of 20th century pewter taken into the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
