NB: Some items pictured here were taken from images on the Web. Obviously, none of those were examined de visu. If the description of the item indicated a company name and number, that information is placed in the entry. There is no guarantee of accuracy in the listings if an image of the mark is not included.

I wish to thank Dr. Melvyn and Bette Wolf and other members of the Pewter Collectors Club of America, as well as Ted and Kyle Homan for allowing me to photograph pieces found in their collections. Only a few of the pieces pictured below are owned by me. Nothing on this page is for sale by Hoosier Pewter.
