Our Story

A Legacy of Quality

Fine, hand-crafted metal products since 1979

Our manufacturing facilities are located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in the beautiful, small town of Easton. Many of our designs are inspired by tableware created by early American silversmiths. Today, our highly skilled artisans reinvent those traditional pieces in order to create the timeless metal items you see in our line.

How it’s made

True Craftmanship

Everyone at Salisbury works hard at perfecting their craft to create the fine metal pieces you see in our lines. Here’s a little introduction to our metal crafting processes, our craftspeople, and the roles they play in producing your cherished items.

    Spinning

    Metal spinners use an old-world method to turn flat metal into 3D items. They place a flat disc of pewter on a lathe, and using tools of their creation, they pull the spinning disc of metal slowly over a mold called a “chuck” to form the desired shape. Cups, bowls, trays, jewelry boxes and more are created using this method. Metal spinners can take 10 years or more to train from an apprentice status to become a master spinner.
