About the Pewter alloy:
working in pewter

Pewter is an alloy of tin, the fourth most valuable metal in general use, and small quantities of other metals, which give strength to the final product. Around the 2nd century AD., the Romans introduced pewter to Britain. However, the manufacture of pewter products was revolutionised by James Vickers in 1769. He introduced a new alloy mix of pewter to the metal working skills found in his native Sheffield. These same traditional skills give the same, lead free alloy, which have been used to make our pewter products today.

Pewter offers the opportunity to produce quality products at affordable prices that shows the skill of the craftsmen who produce it and the beauty of the material.
