pewter is handmade in northern Italy, in family-owned workshops, by artisans who have honed their craft using methods gleaned over many generations.In their skilled hands, this understated yet luxurious material is fashioned into modern heirlooms that are both functional and decorative.A record of these antique hallmarks were copied onto touch plates and stored at the Pewterers hall in Oat Street London.This was the home to the Pewterers Guild (the Worshipful Company of Pewterers London) established in 1348 and still going strong today.This unusually high percentage of tin (the fourth most expensive metal in the world, after platinum, gold and silver) creates a product of exceptional quality, as demonstrated by the luster of the finish and the weighty hand.The addition of copper and antimony strengthen the tin, and copper adds warmth as a by-product of its natural color.
