For 35 years this Italian company has produced all of its giftware and tabletop by hand, a process that has ensured the uniqueness of each item. And because every plate, bowl, pitcher, tray, and tureen is made of pewter (an alloy composed of tin and copper), every piece retains its luster, whether it’s used everyday or simply kept on display. Valpeltro’s candleholders, frames, and goblets with glass bowls and pewter bases may be clearly contemporary, but the company’s medieval-inspired takes on other traditional pieces reveal a classic lean, too.
Some of the best gifts are the unexpected ones, gifts given for no particular reason but a kind thought and a good wish. Here, we've put together a selection of items for when you just, for whatever reason, feel like giving a little something.
Pewter lends a stately, classic quality to an interior, and these timeless pieces are true to that tenet. From bowls and platters to frames and flatware, every piece in this sale is worked by hand in Italy and makes an exquisite accent — a counterpoint to a modern design scheme, or a lush complement to a traditional one — to virtually any room in the home.
Host & Hostess
J. Fleet’s artful, earth-toned lacquer trays make ideal serveware pieces — and they work equally well as stylish room accents. Many feature botanical themes of buds and flowers; we also love the whimsical animal motifs (such as the trio of happy-looking elephants emblazoned on the large tray). And if you're looking for a high-shine counterpoint to these pieces, we’ve also got Italian pewter on offer. Choose from serving bowls, pitchers, carafes, and even an ice bucket.
