Truly a southern tradition, the simple and elegant Julep Cup appeared in a variety of forms throughout the early South.
This Mississippi Julep Cup was inspired by the work of George Macpherson, working in Natchez, circa 1850, who was perhaps the most prolific and successful of the early Mississippi silversmiths.
Natchez seems to have been the gateway to Mississippi in the early 1800s and provided us with a good quantity of early silver.
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.
