Thomas and Patricia Hooper specialize in pewter for Revolutionary and Civil War re-enactors, and also tour at select art shows. I had purchased some of their beautiful candlesticks and a lovely vase, then asked them to make me a mug that would be appropriate for use at the pre-civil War 1840's farm where I give prairie tours. So when I opened the gallery in an 1820's/1830's building, it seemed a natural to carry some reproduction pewter by the Hoopers.
