Pewter is available in a variety of finishes all ideal for the production of giftware, being highly practical and durable whilst also being easily engraved.
Tin is a plentiful natural resource and tin mining has little or no impact on the environment.
Our pewter is an alloy of tin, antimony and copper, tin being the main component at 92% (or in some cases 95%).
Tin in its pure form, whilst being the fourth most precious metal in common use today, is too soft for practical use.
