Tankards & Mugs

Photo of  Dome Lidded Quart Tankard
Price: $375

The Dome Lidded Quart Tankard is an original design inspired by all of the finest 18th century design elements. The ramshorn thumbpiece, the low double dome lid, the low fillet line detail on the body, and the classic handle with boot-heel terminal all combine to create an eye-catching form that would be a welcome addition to any pewter collection. Also a numbered series.

Photo of  Dome Lidded Pint Tankard
Price: $275

The Dome Lidded Pint Tankard is a scaled down version of it’s cousin, the Quart tankard. However, the crown thumbpiece and its hinge are a different style. This is a beautiful tankard and perhaps my favorite. Collectors of antique pewter covet tankards. All agree that the pint capacity tankards are scarce indeed. You’ll enjoy using it! Also a numbered series.

Porringers

Photo of Crown Handle Porringer
Price: $95

The Crown Handle Porringer is a reproduction of an 18th century porringer that I believe was made in Boston.

It has a 5.25″ diameter bowl which was referred to as a pint capacity. These were multi-purpose vessels that were used to eat from, to drink from and to use as measures. In fact, if you look at the inventories of 18th century pewterers, they list the porringers by their capacity...

Photo of Medium Porringer, Flower Handle
Price: $75

The Medium Porringer Flower Handle is a piece my father reproduced many years ago. I believe he copied a 19th century porringer made by the Cincinnati, Ohio firm of Flagg & Homan. It is a wonderful handle design. Most medium size porringer bowls are 4.25″ in diameter.

The Large Jones Porringer is a reproduction of one made in the late 18th century by Providence, Rhode Island pewterer, Gershom Jones, circa 1774 -1809. This was the first piece my father reproduced years ago. It is also special because I grew up in Providence.

Photo of  J. Bassett Porringer
Price: $95

I introduced the John Bassett Porringer several years ago. John Bassett was active in New York City circa 1720 – 1761, and surviving examples of his work today are very rare. His sons Francis and Frederick were also skilled pewterers who produced excellent wares.

This Bassett Porringer has a 5.25″ (pint) bowl with two incised lines on the rim and an “Old English” type handle. Another...

Photo of  Large Melville Porringer
Price: $95

The Melville Porringers are reproductions of ones made in Newport, Rhode Island in the 18th century by David Melville, circa 1755–1793. This kind of handle is referred to as the Solid, Rhode Island type. I enjoy the simplicity of the handle design and it is perhaps the strongest handle I make. Original examples of this type of porringer are scarce.

Photo of  Large Lee Basin Porringer
Price: $95

The Lee Basin Porringer is the largest in our product line with a bowl that measures 6″ in diameter. The Basin Bowl type has a flat bottom, a slightly tapered side, and a narrow, flared rim. The flower handle design on the Lee Porringer is a unique form, made only by Richard Lee and Richard Lee, Jr. The handle is beautiful and balances well with the larger bowl.

Photo of  William Bradford, Jr. Porringer
Price: $95

The William Bradford, Jr. Porringer is yet another 18th century “Old English” type handle with a large (pint) bowl with two incised lines in the rim. Bradford was active in New York City between 1719- 1785, and surviving examples of this man’s work are rare. This is one of my favorite porringer handles.
