    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.

  • Design

    Known as a writer for his book Brev till samhället (Letters to the society), Eric Ericson is also an artist and designer. His hand mirror in pewter and leather was designed exclusively for Svenskt Tenn in 2012. The mirrors are available in five different motives, engraved by hand on the back of each mirror.

The book contains letters that Ericson sent to organisations in Sweden, along with the answers he received. As a designer, Ericson has distinguished himself for the same type of artfulnes that characterises his writing.

  • 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.

  • 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.
