Whimsical, Classic & Bawdy Tampers
James and Beth Boyle have created a unique line of pipe tampers for you. All of our casting is done right here in Western, NY in our studio. Our pewter is poured by hand by James Edward Boyle. All our molds are hand cut and made from period originals or from models designed by THE RAMS HORN. Each piece is carefully cast in fine, lead free, jeweler's pewter that is burnished and antiqued by hand in our studio. In the 17th century an ingenious smoker came up with the pipe tamper, or stopper, as it's known in England, a tool for pressing down lit tobacco in the pipe's bowl. Made from every manner of material--from ivory, pewter, brass to animal teeth and mother-of-pearl--tampers come in a wonderful variety of motifs, including a women's shapely leg, a donkey, a shoe and, yes, a man's tool. All Our tampers are cast in the finest jeweler's pewter. We are always expanding our line so stop in when you can to see what is new! There are others reproducing tampers in pewter but ours are the finest available anywhere. Because we make these they are almost always in stock for fast shipping.
