Everything looks great together -- and they make a very pretty table grouping!
I have several pieces of "faux" pewter in my hutch -- to me they look just as good as the real thing.... and for a lot less money!!

LOVELY finds...I wonder what sort of stories they might tell of a life long past.
Enjoy your treasures!

I love the look. My eye is drawn to this kind of stuff in the antique shops. Love the Ashokan Farewell on the fiddle for your music. Made me want to pull mine out and rosin up the bow!
