Famous Ornaments – Hampshire Pewter
Forget the boring glass balls for your Christmas tree and visit Hampshire Pewter instead. Hampshire Pewter is the only pewter company around that hand-casts each piece, from cups to lamps, one at a time using their special Queen’s Metal pewter. Their renowned Christmas ornaments – which have decked the halls of the White House – are made with the same care and attention to exquisite detail. Stop in for a free weekday tour to see (or purchase) the gorgeous ornaments that depict everything from New Hampshire scenes to the Nativity. The truly dedicated can collect all 22 ornaments in the Covered Bridge Set or the limited edition Twelve Days of Christmas Collection.
