Custom Engraving Services

We had a client who was refinishing an antique trunk as a wedding gift. As a symbol of the marital bond, she wanted to apply a personalized engraved message on an antique lock. She brought us an old lock with an aged patina and requested the couple's last names be engraved with the date of their "incorporation." The result was fantastic when the old copper shined through the years of age on the face of the lock. She thought this was the perfect symbol for a marriage meant to shine through the test of time! Do you need custom engraving? Special engraving orders don't upset us!

Early American Pewter - Britannia

Early American pewter is noted for its simplicity of style. The difficulty and expense of obtaining molds resulted in a slower stylistic evolution than that of silver which did not require molds for its manufacture, though the general design trends in silver were eventually reflected in pewter. Because pewter was a far softer metal, a thicker construction was often used as a means of increasing durability. Further, pewter's basically utilitarian nature discouraged excessive ornamentation.

3 Popular Charms and Their Meanings

Charms were not always worn; they were, at one time, spoken or sung. They historically referred to the blessing that a priest gives at the end of a service. But because of man's need for permanence, charms gradually took on physical forms, worn for their significance to the bearer or for the supposed blessing or fortune they bestow upon the wearer. Anything can be used as a charm. Over the centuries, however, some charms with universal meanings have come to be more well-worn than those with personal significance.

7 Days of Christmas

‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ sounds a jolly carol without hinting that it was actually a catechetical device written by the Jesuits in the 16th century as a means of (secret) instruction of the basic teachings of the Catholic faith. Outward, and even private worship, was banned under the reign of Henry VIII until Elizabeth I. It was not uncommon at the time for homes to be raided since priests used to secretly baptize a child or give a dying person the Last Rites. So the faithful, especially the children, who are learning Christian values are safe from persecution, ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ was popularized.
