When David Reiss founded Match in 1995, he single-handedly introduced America to the beauty of Italian pewter. Reiss discovered the possibilities of this material while traveling through Italy, where he found family-owned workshops that had been producing pewter for generations. The incredible versatility of pewter inspired Reiss to expand the offerings of Match to include barware and dinnerware. Match’s ongoing success is a testament to the product itself, but also the people, from the artisans who hand make each piece to the staff both in America and in Italy. Match thrives on relationships with retailers and prides itself on adhering to the highest levels of quality, attention to detail, and outstanding personal customer service. As a result, Match designs are rarely discontinued, and are destined to be cherished for generations. Each piece of Match Italian pewter is an heirloom.
