ON ONE OCCASION MANY YEARS AGO LEDLIE LAUGHLIN PURCHASED A RARE PIECE OF PHILADELPHIA PEWTER AT AN ANTIQUES SHOP IN PHILADELPHIA. THE SHOP OWNER HAD BEEN AWARE OF LAUGHLIN’S POSITION AS A PEWTER AUTHORITY, BUT COMMENTED THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD LAUGHLIN’S BOOK PEWTER IN AMERICA.  MR. LAUGHLIN ANSWERED THAT HAD THE DEALER OWNED THE BOOK HE WOULD HAVE KNOWN THE RARITY OF THE PIECE HE HAD JUST SOLD TO LAUGHLIN FOR A PITTANCE OF ITS VALUE.

A COLLECTOR CANNOT HAVE TOO MANY BOOKS ON PEWTER.  A PICTURE HERE OR THERE CAN HELP IDENTIFY MANY PIECES. MANY OF THE BEST BOOKS ON PEWTER ARE NO LONGER IN PRINT.

NOT AS BOOK COLLECTORS BUT AS REFERENCES ON PEWTER DO WE OFFER BOOKS ON OCCASION.
