Maker: Preisner, 1970s A bit about this manufacturer: Three brothers, Ben, John, and Frank Preisner, founded the company in 1935, before World War II. or almost a century, the Preisner Pewter Company has been synonymous with quality pewter and sterling silver trophies, giftware, and luxury goods. Over the years, Preisner workmanship has been requested by companies famous for their quality such as Tiffany’s, Ralph Lauren, and Cartier. In the early 2000’s, the Preisner brothers retired from the silver business, and sold the Preisner Pewter Company to the Oldani Family. The apprentices that they taught, now masters, remain with the company and continue to produce the Preisners’ famous line of pewter and sterling silver. Today, the Preisner Pewter Company continues to manufacture pewter and sterling silver at its location in Meriden, CT under the name and management of Peter and Steven Oldani.
