What is PEWTER?
Modern day pewter is a metal alloy composed of at least 90% tin with smaller amounts of other metals - most commonly copper, bismuth and/or silver. It has a low melting point and may be used as a molten liquid for casting or rolled into thin sheets for fabrication. It is lead free and is safe for use. Pewter has been used over the centuries, first by Egyptians & Romas, then extensively during the Middle Ages. It was desired for its versatility and durability. Pewter does not tarnish - it will slowly oxidize when exposed to air, giving it a soft patina. Last steps are polishing wheels and tumbling to give these products a "bright" finish.
CARE: Wash in warm soap & water and towel dry. Use of dishwasher is not recommended.
