The Pewter Society

The Pewter Society exists to stimulate interest in and appreciation of pewter and the many objects both utilitarian and decorative, made from this remarkable metal.

It does this by encouraging research into its history, manufacture and social context. Disseminating information through meetings, publications, exhibitions and other appropriate activities and advising on its care and conservation.

Whilst our membership includes several leading museums and institutions, most of our members are collectors. Some with large and varied collections and others with more modest and specialist ones.
