About Lionheart Replicas

Lionheart Replicas is a small family business run by Colin & Colleen Torode.

We started manufacturing replica historical pewter in 1995 with the intention of supplying re-enactors, museums and collectors with a range of quality historic pewter replicas. Prior to that we had been a model manufacturer; however the popularity of our historical replicas meant that models were soon pushed to the sidelines (for the meantime anyway).

Although we are still a young company our 'pedigree' in metal casting goes back much further, Colin having started working in the white metal/ pewter industry in 1980. The ancestral links to metal working go back generations however, as the family have been blacksmiths since the 18th century – the picture shows a pump plate cast in lead by Colin's Great Great Grandfather in 1858.

Lionheart Replicas have now gained a reputation for the high quality of our castings and for the historical accuracy of our goods, with customers all around the world ranging from individual re-enactors to national museums.

We produce a fantastic range of 'stock' items and also produce bespoke items to order.

We are based in rural Sussex, but frequently travel around the country, either trading at historic fairs or performing our demonstration of medieval pilgrim badge making at heritage attractions large and small.
