The Whaleback Lighthouse Christmas ornament

Whaleback Lighthouse, a 70-foot granite tower on an offshore ledge, stands at the mouth of the Piscataqua River and is the southernmost of 66 lighthouses in Maine. The original 1830 lighthouse was replaced by the present tower in 1872. It is now cared for by the Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation. Click here for more information

Ornaments Made in the USA

All of our Christmas ornaments are made in the USA. The ornaments are handcast using our specialized centrifugal casting machine using vulcanized rubber molds. Our lead-free pewter is heated to a range of 500 - 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The pewter is then cast into the spinning mold carefully by hand. Once the pewter solidifies, the raw ornaments are taken out of the mold. The castings that are satisfactory to the watchful eye of the Pewtersmith are then deburred by hand. The ornaments are then put through our antiquing process. After drying completely, the Christmas ornaments are buffed by hand, removing just the right amount of the antiquing solution to create the beautifully detailed ornament. Finally, the ornaments are dusted, inspected, and packaged with our red elastic bow hangers.
