It can be hard to find affordable gifts that are both stylish and just that little bit different. The striking range from Lancaster and Gibbings certainly ticks both boxes. The beautifully crafted pewterware pieces create a unique collection of chic photo frames, trinket boxes and keyrings with a wonderfully authentic and rustic feel. Lancaster and Gibbings are a small business that use ethically sourced materials to create their fine pewter gifts. A stunning collection, designed and handmade here in the UK.
Lancaster and Gibbings was founded by Sarah Gibbings and Jim Lancaster in 1994. Both had been working in TV set design and special effects but wished to use their creativity to explore the beauty of pewter. From the outset they designed everything themselves to ensure that each piece in the collection boasted their flair and personality. The pieces were sold at Greenwich Market in London until the duo launched the range successfully to a wider market in 1996.
Today every design is still manufactured in the Lancaster and Gibbings Devon workshops and the materials are ethically sourced. The cast pewterware is both eye catching and original giving you fabulous frames and keepsakes that will really make an impression.
Pewter is easy to care for and should be cleaned using a soft cloth and household furniture polish. Do not use silver polish on your pewter as this will enhance the contrast between the highlights and the recessed areas of the piece and so spoil its high quality yet understated look.
The fabulous collection from Lancaster and Gibbings gives you interesting and original pewter gifts with an artisan feel. These characterful pieces are beautifully boxed stylish gifts for all occasions and would grace any home.
