Bette & Melvyn Wolf

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. Our first antiques show was in 1975 and our last in November of 2019. We carried more pewter to shows than any other dealer ever.


We can now be seen at our website and at virtual antiques shows.


We love pewter and it shows. We both have served as President of the Pewter Collectors Club of American with Bette serving two separate times. We both have been given Honorary Membership which has only been awarded to few members. We remain active on its Board with Mel having served the longest of any member.


We have authored more than 150 articles on pewter. Mel’s articles on identifying American Measures, Lamps, Chalices, Candlesticks and Porringers are still a standard. Our published book An American Pewter Collection is a 500 limited edition and is leather bound. It is considered one of the best books on identifying American pewter. The photographs are large and of good quality. The comments made about the pewter objects are informative and can’t be found anywhere else easily. Auction houses seem to like it and use it frequently. Our Addendum came out later with pewter which we had purchased since the first book was printed.
