From our workshop in Middlebury, Vermont, we make American pewter inspired by ancient craft and modern day design. We create beautiful objects—rooted in simplicity and functionality—designed to be used: Christmas ornaments passed down through generations, oil lamps to light cozy homes, jewelry to adorn the everyday. We honor the metal, we celebrate milestones, and we elevate the everyday with handcrafted pewter designed to stand the test of time.
Pewter is an incredibly versatile metal; this alloy of tin, copper, and antimony can make buttons and oil lamps, jewelry and tableware, everyday housewares and timeless objects. At Danforth, we use this metal to make a wide range of items ranging from the classic to the contemporary.
Our pewter is 100 percent lead free and meets or exceeds all FDA food-safety standards. Our designs are all hand-crafted—cast or spun—at our Middlebury, VT, workshop, where visitors can see firsthand our 21st century approach to this ancient craft.
