All Exotic Giftware Pewter Products are manufactured in the North of Thailand by a renowned Company who employ professional artisans and have many years of experience in creating Pewter Products. Pewter is a malleable metal alloy. The use of pewter was common from the Middle Ages up until the various developments in glass-making during the 18th and 19th centuries.Pewter was the main tableware until the making of porcelain. In the early 19th Century, changes of fashion witnessed a decline in the use of pewter flatware such as plates and dishes, but increased production of both cast and spun pewter tea sets, whale - oil lamps and candlesticks. Later in the same century, pewter alloys were often used as a base metal for silver-plated objects.
Modern pewter contains little or no lead, which has been replaced with antimony. Today, pewter is mainly used in decorative objects with it's own preciousness and value.Composition : Tin (SN) 90%, Antimony (SB), Copper (CU) and Silver 10%. All Exotic Giftware Pewter Products are lead free and food safe. Pewter Care : Pewter will retain its shiny finish with a minimum of care. Certain conditions will cause pewter to oxidize & darken, however, pewter will not tarnish like silver & copper.
Pewter should always be washed by hand in hot soapy water and dried with a soft cloth. DO NOT wash pewter in an automatic dishwasher. If it has become dull, clean with an all - purpose metal (not silver) polish prior to washing.For the best results, always polish in straight lines, never in circles. Pewter is soft so even rubbing with a coarse cloth will affect the patina on edges or fine detail. Pewter SHOULD NEVER be used in an oven, microwave or on the top of a stove and SHOULD NOT be exposed to a direct flame. All weights and sizes are approximate.
