A Demonstration in Pewter Making
By L. M. A. ROY
[Originally published September 1949 ; posted in conjunction with Barrymore Laurence Scherer's "American Pewter," March/April 2013.]
Mr. Roy's model for this pictorial demonstration was John G. Herrock, "whose family," he says," were tinkering with tools from the time they came to Maine in 1799." Besides pewter, he makes violins, reproductions of colonial furniture, wrought iron, jewelry, and clocks.
