The Flutes & Pearls Collection

Introduced in the summer of 2000, Flutes & Pearls is a reproduction and adaptation of an 1821 candlestick base design by Mr. Karl Friedrich Schinkel. In decorative arts references, “Flutes” are sculpted parallel indentations and “Pearls” are repeated raised beads. The combination makes for a sparkling effect. The history of this design and its application begins in 1821, when Karl Freidrich Schinkel (1781 – 1841) began publishing a portfolio collection of Classical designs which was destined to determine the direction of the decorative arts throughout Europe for many years. Constructed of food-safe, 100%-recycled metal alloy, Wilton Armetale Flutes & Pearls collection pieces will not rust, crack, chip, dent, or tarnish. With the ability to withstand temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, all Wilton Armetale products are safe for the oven, grill, and stovetop. To clean, hand wash with hot soapy water and towel dry. Do not put in the microwave or dishwasher. With proper care your Armetale Grillware can last a lifetime.

Wilton Armetale : A History

Begun in 1892 by the Wilton Family in Wrightsville, PA, along the Susquehanna River, Susquehanna Castings was a foundry located across the street from the Wilton family lime kiln company known as Stacy Wilton Lime Company.

Wilton Products

The origin date of this company is unknown but believed to be approximately 1935. It was the immediate separate but overlapping successor to Susquehanna Castings when Susquehanna Castings made iron products, while Wilton Products decorated them. Started by the Wilton family and presided over by Mr. Ralph (Bud) Wilton, Jr. this company produced painted iron objects for industry and consumers.

Presided over by Mr. Henry Wilton (brother of Mr. Ralph (Bud) Wilton) from the 1950s until its close in 1989, the company was best known during its last 35 years for its wall decorations, garden plaques and novelty items. Many of the original designs and objects produced by Wilton Products are occasionally reintroduced as Armetale brand products as part of the American Inspirations division.

Wilton Brass

Established in 1954, the Wilton Brass Company located at 18th and Franklin streets in Columbia, Pennsylvania, offered brass objects made for industry and consumers. This company was a collaboration between Mr. Frederick M. Wilton and his nephew, Mr. Ralph (Bud) Wilton. In 1963 this company developed another metal from an aluminum based alloy which it called ‘Armetale’. By the late 1960s the ‘Armetale’ brand products overshadowed the brass offerings. The company continued to be known as the ‘Wilton Brass Company’ until well into the 1980s.

    Beautiful pieces These goblets are beautiful. The only mistake I made is ordering them and not using them at my wedding– we completely forgot! They now serve as decoration on my mantel and do that job quite well too. I would recommend these hands down!

    rating It was okay the picture looks better, Once I received package and open it I didn’t care for it. The more I look at it the more I would like to ship it back. I only have a week until I need to use it so I do not have time to send it back. The item looks dull it is not shiny like the picture. It looks cheap. The inside of the cup is scratch.
