Oil Lamps & Candle Holders

Photo of Fluted Pewter Candlesticks
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!

Photo of Ring Handle Pewter Candlesnuffer
Price: $40

The Ring Handle and Plain Handle Candle snuffers are original designs that have been quite popular. Pewter is soft, so a long pewter handle on a delicate piece is not practical. Therefore, I created compact handles which are sturdy and easy to use. They do not take up a lot of space on the mantel either!

Pewter Hancock Oil Lamp
Price: $250

The Hancock Oil Lamp is a wonderful new design which I co-created with the owners of the Hancock Inn for their dining room table lighting. It is an adaptation of our Tavern Lamp, sans handle, with a longer, flared base which holds the glass chimney firmly in place.  The single brass burner produces a soft, mellow light. All lamps come with instructions, a pewter chimney extinguisher cap, and a...

Photo of Pewter Dunham Standing Lamp
Price: $250

The Dunham Standing Lamp is a beautiful piece. It is a reproduction of a 19th century whale oil lamp by Rufus Dunham, Westbrook, Maine, circa 1830s. These kinds of lamps were often used for lighting a table top, a mantel, or a candle stand.

All of our oil lamps work and produce the soft light of a by gone era. Each lamp comes with instructions and a free bottle of lamp oil.

Photo of Pewter Gleason Lace Maker’s Lamp (double)
Price: $595

The Gleason Bullseye Whale Oil Lamp is a great lighting device. The original was patented in the 1830s by Roswell Gleason, of Dorchester, Massachusetts, as a work light. These lamps are also referred to as lacemakers’ lamps.

The glass lenses magnify the light of the flame and the shade above the lens which is slightly canted, focuses the light for in close hand work, or reading. Gleason...

Ladles & Spoons

Photo of Colonial Midrib Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

The Colonial Midrib Spoon is cast in an antique bronze mold which dates around 1750s. Some folks refer to this type, simply, as the rattail spoon. The spline on the top of the handle is the midrib. Another great soup spoon.

Photo of Round Bowl Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

The Round Bowl Spoon is a reproduction of an early 18th century Dutch style spoon. It has a deeper bowl that the Turkey Claw, and it makes an excellent soup spoon.

Photo of Pewter Salt Spoon
Price: $10

The Salt Spoon is short, cute, and sturdy. Great on the table top, or on the stovetop. Also sold with our Salt Bowl seen in the bowl category.

Photo of Rosette Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

Who said lightning never strikes twice? At the end of last year, a gentleman walked into my shop and asked me if I would like to buy his spoon mold. When he unwrapped the mold I was pleasantly suprised. Actually, my heart skipped a few beats. I was looking at another engraved spoon mold! Twenty years of looking for one of these and here was number two in my hands within three months time....

Photo of Reproduction William III Pewter Spoon
Price: $20

I recently acquired an important early 18th century wavy-end bronze spoon mold at auction. The mold is engraved with a royal portrait on the top and a fanciful scroll pattern on the underside of the bowl.

Initially I thought it was of Queen Anne, but I’ve been talking with several pewter scholars recently and the consensus is it’s probably not a portrait of Queen Anne, but rather an...

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.
