In 1977, pewter spinner Alan Sharp and metalworker Robert Shaw founded the English Pewter Company, renting a small workshop and undertaking all aspects of production themselves, producing high quality products at a fair price.

Alan bought out Robert and was joined by his son Jason, and today the Sharps lead this family run business, still manufacturing each and every item of it’s luxury pewter ware in Sheffield, a city renowned worldwide for the quality of its metalwork, silverwork and cutlery.

The family is careful to ensure the skills of past pewter craftsmen are passed down through generations. This policy has given its current small expert team of pewter spinners, pewtersmiths, polishers and engravers an unrivalled collective experience that is evident in the beautiful products it produces today.
