Pewter and collecting pewter

pewter display

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 holding meeting in members’ homes or clubs the Pewter Society has grown into a thriving group of collectors, social historians and researchers. The society has a database of over 19,422 pewterers and their marks.

Join us and benefit from a wealth of knowledege and opportunities to meet and share with other collectors.

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.
