Services to museums


 Help to identify and catalogue individual pieces of pewter and complete collections.


The Society will be very pleased to visit museums, churches and other places holding collections on behalf of the public, to identify and catalogue both individual pieces of pewter and complete collections. Recently, for example, we have re-catalogued large collections of pewter at Chichester Cathedral, Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro and two National Trust properties.

This service is completely free and is available throughout the UK and Ireland. We will do our best to help with enquiries from elsewhere too, but our ability to do so would depend on the nature of the collection and whether we had members locally with the necessary expertise.

Please note that we do not undertake valuations.
