    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

    The pewter vase was designed by Estrid Ericson in 1930 and has a brass band that winds around the vase with the inscription “Nullus amor nisi fructus servat amorem” – No love without response.

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer. Ericson never had an aesthetic programme mapped out, but she had an imaginative person’s perceptiveness for the many faces of beauty. Read more

  • 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. At Humstorp Metallverkstad in Västergötland they are constantly working on choosing the most environmentally friendly alternatives when purchasing. Throughout the manufacturing process, waste is minimised and whatever metal scrap remains is sent to recycling. Excess pewter can be melted down and used once again. In addition, a separate solar power facility provides approximately 40% of the workshop’s electricity consumption.

    This is how pewter objects are manufactured at Humstorp Metall

    The first stage in the manufacture of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter objects is to start the crucible at the workshop. The pewter is melted at 263° and it takes approximately one hour before it is sufficiently hot to be cast into the moulds.

    After that, it’s time for the actual moulding, work which requires enormous precision and artisanal skill. The slightest incorrect calculation can result in the moulding being scrapped and melted anew, and thus it is of the greatest importance that the moulds are of the right temperature, that they are angled correctly, and that the pewter is cast into the moulds at the right speed. The pewter solidifies in just a few seconds, depending somewhat on product and the temperature of the pewter. The moulds must then be cooled down before it is possible to mould again.

    Once the solidified products are taken out of the moulds, it’s time also to grind them and, in some cases, prepare details and contours by hand. At this stage, an inspection takes place as to whether any part of the object must be repaired or reworked. The least impurity in the pewter means that the product must be soldered, ground and polished until the correct final result is achieved.
