October 2016 Newsletter- Our return to Osaka!

In this edition we tell you all about Sam’s time in Japan, a surprising appearance on The Great British Bake Off and we give thanks to the Soldiers who risked their lives for our Country.

Every October, Sam flies all the way over to Osaka in Japan to see some of our friends and to demonstrate some of his pewter skills to the public at the Hankyu Department Store.

This year Sam decided to bring along some of our enamelling colours and explain how we’d enamel our Christmas decorations if we didn’t have our machines with us.

If you’ve liked our Facebook page or read any of our Newsletters before, you’ll know that Sam has a friend in Osaka called Rio who he sees every year. Luckily this year, Rio came to visit Sam again and even helped him with his enamelling!

Attention Bake Off fans, on October 12th, you may have spotted that we had a small appearance in the ‘Tudor’ episode of the series where they visited Hampton Court Palace…

On this table where Henry VIII himself has sat, along with his many wives, you can see our Pewter Goblets, Plates and Bowls just a few inches away from Mel Giedroyc herself!

Our Tudor Goblets which are shown in the picture above, have also appeared in TV series such as Game of Thrones and BBC’s ‘The Tudors’!

With Remembrance Day approaching, we want to remind you that of all the Remembrance items that we make here, we can guarantee that a percentage of our profit does go to The Royal British Legion.

The reason that we produce our pewter poppies, remembrance keyrings and pocket watches is a way of showing our gratitude for the soldiers who risked their lives for us and to try and comfort and remind the public that those soldiers will always be in our hearts.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.”
