Hollis, New Hampshire
Hollis was first settled by Anna and Peter Powers and their children in 1731 and was incorporated in 1746. It was one of four townships created from West Dunstable district. It was originally spelled Holles in honor of the Duke of Newcastle and Secretary of State at that time. When Hollis was incorporated, the town tax list comprised 54 families. By 1760, that number had risen to over 105 families.

If you're interested in creating a custom piece for your company, town, church, or organization, give us a call and we can begin the design process. We will discuss your idea or help you to develop a concept which we then send off to our artists and they will give us a detailed sketch of the ornament, which we send to you for approval. Our process continues with the design being sculpted out of resin into a 3-D model. Pictures of this sculpted piece then goes to the customer for review, and once it is approved, we can create a vulcanized rubber mold for the ornament. After the mold is created, we begin hand-casting the ornaments with our centrifugal casting machine. Once the ornaments have cooled to raw solid pieces of pewter, they are deburred, antiqued to bring out the detailing, buffed by hand, dusted, inspected, ribboned, and packaged. Our custom ornament process takes around 6-8 weeks from an idea on paper to a batch of pewter ornaments in-hand.
