The Burnished Beauty of Pewter

The Burnished Beauty of PewterMany lovely examples of antique pewter can still be found, though it is often difficult to distinguish British from American-made, as colonial craftsmen frequently used British moulds. Few have maker’s marks, but all have the lustrous patina that makes pewter collectibles attractive for displaying in homes. The pieces may be used in service, bearing in mind that older ones usually contain some percentage of lead.
