The Pewter Society was founded in 1918 as the Society of Pewter Collectors and is the second oldest society devoted to collecting specialised antiques.


From its small beginnings meeting in members’ homes or clubs to a 'by invitation only' society, The Pewter Society has grown into a thriving group of collectors, social historians and researchers.

Last year the society  celebrated its Centenary with the launch of a newly refurbished database of over 19,422 pewterers and their marks.

The Society is willing to help members of the public identify individual items of pewter if we can.

This service is free, but it is not available to dealers nor to individuals if the sole purpose of the identification is to facilitate the sale of the item.
