Did you know?
Pewter, an alloy used for making jewelry, tableware, sculptures and small decorative items, is typically made from tin and copper, although variations of this are common. There are a variety of methods used to cast pewter, from those used hundreds of years ago to more modern techniques.
Whatever the method, casting pewter generally involves creating a mold and melting the alloy into it for casting.
There are many misconceptions, untruths, and misunderstandings related to pewter; here are some facts:
* Pewter is the fourth most precious metal, ranked just after gold, silver, and platinum.
* Pewter is not found in its natural state anywhere in the world. It is an alloy, comprised of a number of elements.
* Pewter’s primary element is tin; other elements may be copper, antimony, bismuth, silver or lead (the more tin, the higher the grade of pewter). A few years ago, the FTC established a standard for pewter, which in effect states that in order to be called “pewter,” a metal must contain a minimum of 90% Grade A tin.
