Description : Set of four reproduction pewter (?) goblets. Handmade, slightly irregular stems, hammered pewter (?) base and cup, with maker's logo on the bottom. Goblets are a dull silver colour. Manufacturer is unknown.
Commentaires : Pewter is a tin-based alloy used to make domestic utensils. Pewter dates back at least 2,000 years, to Roman times. Ancient pewter contained about 70 percent tin and 30 percent lead. Such pewter, also called black metal, darkened greatly with age, and the lead readily leached out in contact with acidic foods. Pewter with little or no lead is of finer quality, and alloys that include antimony and bismuth are more durable and shinier. Modern pewter is about 91 percent tin, 7.5 percent antimony, and 1.5 percent copper; the absence of lead makes it safe to use for foods and beverages. The surface of modern pewter is bluish white with either a bright finish or a soft, satin sheen. It resists tarnish, retaining its colour and finish indefinitely. These handmade reproduction goblets are on display in the kitchen of the Doucet House and are reminiscent of a style that may have been originally used in this early Acadian home. As one of the most historic buildings on Prince Edward Island, the Doucet House is certainly the oldest house in the Rustico area and quite possibly in the whole province. The Doucet family owned the house from around 1770 until 1982. The house was originally situated on Grand-Père Point (Cymbria) and was continually inhabited by descendants of Doucet families until 1982 when it was acquired by John Langdale who used it as a summer residence. When the latter decided to build a new home on the site, he stated his intention to either demolish it or give it to a person or party who would move it to another site. The Friends of the Farmers' Bank accepted the offer and the house was moved to a site adjacent to the Farmers' Bank in December of 1999.
