    Pewter is a silvery-white metallic element that is extracted primarily from the mineral tinstone or cassiterite. It is one of the few metals that have been in use since prehistoric times.

    Pewter has a lower melting point than other metals, which means that candles should never be left to burn down completely. This can cause the pewter to melt and lose its shape, which cannot be restored. As a precaution, blow out the candles when there is still 4-5 cm left.

    The candle cup is attached with a screw and should be handled with care. Avoid excessive pressure when placing the candle into the cup. If the cup needs to be screwed on more tightly, this should be done slowly and carefully.

  • Design

    This Egyptian-inspired candle holder in pewter was designed by Edvin Öhrström in 1928. It is most likely the Horus god from Egyptian mythology. Initially, the design was going to be the handle of a hand mirror, but it was changed into a candle holder by Estrid Ericson.

    Edvin Öhrström

    Edvin Öhrström was a Swedish sculptor, glass- and visual artist. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and the Technical School in Stockholm, at the Académie Colarossi, Académie Scandinave Maison Watteau and Fernand Léger at the Académie Moderne in Paris. He began working at Orrefors Glassworks in 1936.

  • Care instructions

    Pewter is a soft material that requires careful treatment. We recommend using cotton gloves when handling pewter. Objects that are not being used can be stored in a plastic or felt bag to avoid scratching.

    It is generally recommended to avoid using polish on pewter, since it can cause scratches. To remove fingerprints and other stains, rinse the pewter in warm water with a small amount of dish detergent. Dry with a soft cloth. For more advanced cleaning of pewter objects we recommend a professional restorer, for example, KA Johnsson in Stockholm.

    Never leave candles unattended and make sure to blow them out before they reach the candle holder. Keep in mind that some surfaces may be extra sensitive to heat. Take extra caution if you are unsure of the qualities of the table top.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Pewter

    The metal pewter has been used since ancient times and is extracted from the mineral cassiterite. Throughout the manufacturing process of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter objects, waste is minimised and whatever metal scrap remains is sent to recycling. Excess pewter can be melted down and used once again. The family-owned company Freitas in Portugal manufactures some of Svenskt Tenn's pewter items, and the company follows EU rules and regulations when it comes to production of pewter.

    This is how pewter objects are manufactured at Freitas

    At Freitas, several craftsmen work with the production of Svenskt Tenn's objects. The prototypes are made by hand without templates and molds. Once the prototypes are made, they manufacture specific molds for casting or spinning. Sometimes different parts need to be soldered together before the objects are engraved, polished, cleaned and finally checked and approved before they are sent to Svenskt Tenn.
