Vintage GG Harris fine pewter jewelry
The history of the Harris family business began in 1983, when a young 27-year-old truck driver George G. Harris created his first pewter trout pin. According to the designer, from that moment on, he could no longer stop. With his education in biology and his natural talent as an artist, his lifelike and anatomically correct lapel pins became popular in his native New Jersey and throughout the United States.
George Harris became involved in the design, marketing and sales of his products. Handcrafted with exquisite craftsmanship, his vintage pieces from the Wildlife collection have become highly collectible.
Noteworthy, Harris has created more than 2,500 designs depicting dog breeds, birds, wild and domestic animals, embodied in pewter keychains, lapel pins, earrings and much more.
His shop, located in Manalapan, New Jersey, where Harris works with his brother Jim and a team of craftsmen, is still in operation.
Traditionally made from fine pewter, his jewelry is labeled Harris, in addition to the year of manufacture and the name of the animal or collection.
