About Us

Bette & Melvyn WolfFor the last few years clients have been asking us where our website was. We decided to go modern and finally developed this site. We hope you like it and find what we offer user friendly.

We started collecting American Pewter in the 1960’s and still have not stopped. We began selling pewter, American, British, and Continental, and to a lesser degree other base metals in 1974, exhibiting at our first antiques show in 1975.

We have never had a “shop” but exhibited at antiques shows and have an active business through the mail and by phone. We currently exhibit in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Delaware. We advertise in the Maine Antiques Digest and The Newtown Bee. We display more pewter at an antiques show than any other dealer in the country. We maintain an active “want” list for those looking for something special.

We love pewter and it shows. We are the only husband and wife who have served as Presidents of the Pewter Collectors Club of America (PCCA) with Bette serving twice. Both have been given Honorary Membership in the PCCA. We remain active on its Board with Mel serving the longest of any member.

We have authored more than 150 articles on pewter. Mel’s articles on identifying Measures, Lamps, Chalices, Candlesticks, and Porringers are still a standard. Our book An American Pewter Collection is a limited edition leather bound book and considered the best book in identifying pewter. The pictures are big and of good quality. The comments made about the pewter objects are informative and can’t be found anywhere else. Auction houses seem to like it and use it frequently. The addendum came out later with other pewter we had purchased since the first book.

With all this in mind, we established our website. If you have any questions, just give us a call (810-732-6595 or cell 810-255-2726) or email us at b.m.wolf@att.net. We are noted for our knowledge and integrity. You will enjoy dealing with us.
