Hampshire Pewter - Giveaway!!

Pewter is a simple, yet elegant metal that has been used for thousands of years. In the United States, we associate pewter with our own colonial history. We think of a blazing hearth in a rural cottage, or the elegance of a Victorian mansion.

Hampshire Pewter is continuing that tradition. They use pewter to make exquisite pieces of art that are also functional. Founded in 1974 and located in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, Hampshire Pewter truly makes beautiful products.


Hampshire Pewter is very generously giving one of you their Old Fashioned Tumbler, valued at $51: In order to enter:
- Go visit Hampshire Pewter's Site
- Come back here and leave a comment listing your favorite product
- Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win!
- Must have a US Shipping Address to win
- Only one entry per person, please

I'm going to cheat and say the Xmas ornament gift set because I cannot narrow my selection down among the beautiful pewter ornaments.

Aisling said...

These products are just lovely. I'd really like the ring holder for myself, but my sister-in-law collects bells and I'm eying the Abbey Chime for her. Guess they're both my "favorites".

I particularly like the Christmas items, especially the Nativity Set.

Tracy said...

I would love the Loop Cross. My great Aunt, who also baptized me as a baby making her my Godmother also, wore a Loop Cross very similar to this one, it wasn't very expensive, but it was the only thing that I wanted when she passed (skin cancer, so please everyone don't skip dermatologist visits, and get checked at least annually), everytime I see a loop cross I think immediately of her.

Table vase is the best. Always out in the open for everyone to enjoy~

I love the bradford candle sticks they would look so good in my dining room.

mensa63 said...

One reason I love fall and winter is the chance to use my pewter oil lamps and candlesticks. Nothing makes a room more homey and warm than these items. I love all of the Bradford candle sticks and oil lamps and found myself loving the Candlestick lamp. Even though is is electric its design is so lovingly wrought that it fits right in with the oil lamps and the candlestocks.

Pewter will forever remind me of Colonial America, and that includes my 11th great-grandfather Gov. William Bradford, who wrote the Mayflower Compact. How nice to find a company of skilled craftsmen who specialize in the delicate art of pewter. I love the goblets and tankards, and the candlesticks. Would love the pewter cup giveaway item.
