Websites with pewter interest

One of the joys of any passion is having the means to pursue it further, which probably means 'surfing' the World Wide Web.  There are so many interesting locations we want to introduce to our fellow pewter buffs.  We hope you will find the time spent visiting them is productive.  Not only that, but it is also convenient from the comfort of home or library, and cheaper than real time travel.  Most of the following websites have a search facility, and some provide amazing results when you type in 'pewter', including image galleries of pewter, and other historic objects.
