Lancaster and Gibbings was established in 1996 by Sarah Gibbings and Jim Lancaster out of their shared desire to produce a product that was not only handmade, but also designed by the makers. The aim was to develop a product range with emphasis on individual personality.
Lancaster and Gibbings manufactures a range of handmade cast pewter giftware. They chose to work in Pewter not only for its natural beauty and ability to reproduce the fine detail, but also because of its long history and pedigree. Although the use of Pewter declined during the 20th Century, in recent years it has seen resurgence in popularity. In terms of value it is the fourth most precious metal in common use after platinum, gold and silver.
