Massachusetts, considered by many to be the birthplace of American Pewter making, has given us some of our finest craftsmen.
Richard Graves, thought to be America’s finest pewterer, settled in Salem in 1635, but unfortunately no examples of his work are known to have survived.
Salisbury Pewter’s Massachusetts Cup reflects the design taste of a later craftsman, the famous Oliver Trask; Beverly, circa 1822-1839. Trask has left us with some excellent examples of Massachusetts pewter including the unusual beaker that was the inspiration for this cup.
CARING FOR PEWTER:
With little attention, the beauty of your pewter will last for generations, eventually gaining a soft, rich patina typical of the finest antiques.
Please follow these few suggestions:
~ After using, wash your pewter by hand (never in a dishwasher) in warm, soapy water, drying it with a soft towel.
~ Should your pewter ever need polishing, there are several good products available.
~ When storing your pewter, always wrap it in the original wrapping foam to avoid scratching.
~ Never wrap pewter in tissue paper as fine line scratching will occur.
