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 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.
