The Creation of a Licensed Product 
Salisbury finished master 
Salisbury Pewter has re-created the Newport Cuff Bracelet!  This exquisite bracelet, formerly interpreted in silver, will be cast in polished pewter. Using the graceful, interlaced scroll design based on the back splat of a side chair in the Winterthur collection, a craftsman produced the production model. The Winterthur mark was hand-engraved into the underside of the model. The production model is then used to create the mold. 
The bracelet will be available for sale through stores in early November.
