On Saturday, July 18 from 10am to 4pm, I will be at the Franklin Pierce Homestead in Hillsborough, NH, casting spoons in a circa 1750 antique bronze spoon mold.

I've finished the sugar bowl, creamer and tray to go with the Queen Anne Teapots. So now we have a complete and elegant set!
Collectors have referred to this style of teapot as "Queen Anne" even though they were introduced during the reign of King George III (1760-1801), well after her reign (1704-1711). Some collectors refer to this type simply as an 18th century pear-shaped teapot. I think all would agree that whatever the name, the style is without rival. These teapots are beautiful and elegant.
In between product development and rebuilding our inventory, I've been working on a couple of casting videos. We will throw up the spoon video next month. Another, illustrating how the Dunham candlesticks are made, will be posted after we finish shooting the entire process.
I've been keeping busy, working on designing a sugar bowl, creamer and tray to go with the Queen Anne Teapots this winter. So we will have a complete and elegant set very soon!
