"The art deco form was inspired by the "Internationale des Arts Decoratifs", Paris Exposition in 1925. The Aitkens Pewter artisans capture the clean "modernization" of lines in this period."

"The Aitkens Pewter artisans have created an exceptional work of art. A gracious curve flows down from the face and cradles the orb as a wave cradles the moon."

Freespun vase

"This vase is the only one of this kind that is made. The Pewter-Smith does not use a special chuck to regulate the patterns, thereby producing a unique design everytime and allowing you to purchase a one of a kind."

About Us

The Aitkens Pewter story began in 1972, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

Martin Aitken, then 17, had apprenticed with well-known pewterer Dr. Ivan Crowell and set up his own shop in the city. The following year, his father Philip joined him, and the Aitkens ‘touchmark’—the triple A in a circle—had its debut.

Aitkens Pewter - TouchmarkDecades later, that touchmark still represents the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every piece we make.

Pewter is at least 95% tin with small parts of antimony and copper, making it an extremely versatile metal that actually improves with age. It doesn’t rust, tarnish or affect the taste of food or drink, and requires little maintenance.

At Aitkens Pewter, we employ the time-honoured methods of spinning and casting. Coasters, frames, jewellery, and ornaments are cast in rubber molds. Hollowware—mugs, goblets, vases and bowls—are spun on a lathe. Pre-cast handles and stems are soldered into place. Finally, the piece is hand-polished, tumbled in stones, or buffed.

 

At Aitkens Pewter we value our customers.That’s why we maintain a level of service that is unsurpassed in the industry.We sell directly to you from our own retail stores, our web site and from our studio—whether it’s a straightforward in-store purchase or a more complex custom order.

March 5, 2015 at 9am to March 8, 2015 at 5pm
On June 18, 1812 the United States declared war on Britain and placed His Majesty’s colonies in British North America (now Canada) in peril. Already fighting a life and death struggle with Napoleon, Britain had no desire for a conflict on two fronts. The United States, on the other hand, felt their young independence threatened by a British embargo on American trade with France, the seizure of British deserters on U.S. vessels at sea and action to prevent American westward expansion. The war…See More

The Lost War: 1776-1783 exhibition at the NB Museum at New Brunswick Museum, 1 Market Square, Saint John, NB, E2L4Z6

March 5, 2015 at 9am to March 8, 2015 at 5pm
New Brunswick was created out of the western portion of Nova Scotia in 1784 as a result of the American War of Independence. Many had opposed rebellion. More than 500,000 of these Tories or Loyalists existed at one time or another but most chose to remain part of American society. For others, at least 60,000, exile was the only alternative. In 1783, over 30,000 boarded vessels in New York for Nova Scotia and nearly half of these came to what is now New Brunswick in spring, summer and fall…See More
