A E Williams

Did you know that A E Williams, based in Digbeth, is the oldest family-run pewtersmiths in the world?

The A E Williams family have been making pewter since 1779, and have even supplied Buckingham Palace with their wares! The family business continues to produce hand cast traditional pewterware – each piece made with care by craftsmen (see video below).

If you’d like to learn more, a brief history of the company is available on their website here; alternatively you can visit the Birmingham: its people, its history exhibition at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) which features further information on A E Williams.
