Superior Models Inc.

Founder: John Carter

Location: New York

Circa: 1969 to Present

John started his Company around 1969 called, Superior Models Inc. It was mainly a Hobby Company, making Models of World War 2 Submarines and Ships. He also did quite a bit of Contract Work for other Companies. Then in 1975, when Pewter was becoming quite popular, he started a Sub-Division of Superior Models Inc. Called, Perth Pewter Designs and Collectibles. In the beginning, most of the Perth Pewter Designs were created by the Artist James Lane Casey, Ron Spicer, Ray Lamb, and John Dennett.

Since Perth Pewter was originally a Sub-Division of Superior Models, Some of the items will have the Superior Models Logo along with the Artist Signature on the bottom of the item, while other items will have the Perth Pewter Logo along with the Artist Signature on the bottom. Some items will even have both the Superior Models and the Perth Pewter Logo on the bottom. The Original Owner, John Carter, did not find it necessary to immediately change the Logo from Superior Models, on the bottom of the items, over to Perth Pewter, even though he was selling the items under the Perth Pewter Name. Nor did he change some of the items from Superior Models over to Perth Pewter on the bottom of the Item. So, even though some of the items may say Superior Models on the bottom, they are very much Authentic Perth Pewter Items and Signed by the Artist that created the Design.
