I, Frank M. Powell, welcome you to Powell Pewter’s online shop.

This website offers a select inventory of items currently for sale, including antique early American pewter, British export pewter, antique English and continental pewter. If additional information is requested beyond the descriptions and photos provided on this website, please contact me via email at powellpewter@comcast.net.

Not all of Powell Pewter’s inventory is published on this site.  If you are interested in something that you do not see available, please ask. Your want list is always welcome.  If you have items that require expert pewter restoration, I have extensive experience in all facets of pewter repair and restoration needs.   If you are looking to sell fine antique pewter, please send detailed photos, a description including condition and maker, and general asking price of each item.  I may be interested, and will respond promptly. 

I have been collecting antique pewter for over forty years, and actively selling since 1988.  As an avid collector, I have an extensive library of research material available and am able to collaborate with other experts to verify authenticity, attribution, condition, and market value. I have experience purchasing from and selling to fellow pewter collectors; have participated in local antique shows; and am always looking to connect with new individuals/parties interested in pewter. 

Thank you for your interest in Powell Pewter’s website and fine early antique pewter.  We appreciate your business.

Lay-Away Plans

Powell Pewter recognizes that in these times of economic uncertainty and radically fluctuating savings and investment dollars, everyone must be cautious with their disposable income and collecting dollars. With this in mind, I am willing to establish confidential, mutually-agreed upon lay-away plans.  If you are interested in an item, but do not currently have the ability to fit in it your collecting budget, feel free to ask about this possibility.
