    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

    With its pipes sticking out, flowers are placed in beautiful proportion to each other, which was certainly the early functionalist designer Nils Fougstedt’s intention when he designed this vase in pewter. It feels modern even though it was designed back in 1931.

     

    Designer

    Nils Fougstedt

    Nils Fougstedt (1881-1954) was a sculptor and pewter artists. Together with Estrid Ericson, he opened a store and workshop for the manufacture and sale of pewter objects in 1924. The store later resulted in Estrid Ericson founding the company Svenskt Tenn and Nils Fougstedt continued to design several beautiful objects for the company.

  • 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.

    Keep in mind that humidity can damage table tops and other surfaces. Wipe the vase dry immediately after filling it with water, and always keep it dry to reduce the need for polishing.

  • 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.
