Historic pewter on display at Haddon

Thanks to a visiting member of the Pewter Society, a number of Haddon Hall’s collection of pewter items are now on display after three years of careful restoration.

The treasures had been left largely untouched since the family moved to Belvoir Castle in 1703 and one piece was being used as a saucer for a pot plant when it was spotted by the visiting expert.
