From our workshop in Middlebury, Vermont, we make American pewter inspired by ancient craft and modern-day design.
We create beautiful objects — rooted in simplicity and functionality — designed to be used: Christmas ornaments passed down through generations, oil lamps to light cozy homes, jewelry to adorn the everyday. We honor the metal, we celebrate milestones, and we elevate the everyday with handcrafted pewter designed to stand the test of time.
Visit our Flagship Store & Workshop to watch how it’s made in person. Our observation windows welcome you to watch our craftspeople create unique, handmade pieces, while our knowledgeable associates explain each step of the process. After the observation tour, you’re invited to take a moment to learn about the history of pewter-making in America along our history wall, which includes a display of colonial era Danforth Pewter pieces from the family’s private collection. In addition to tours and history, our Flagship Store offers a fun shopping experience and a tasting room from the local Foley Brothers Brewery, for those 21 and over.
