    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 and brass bowls were designed in 2002 by Sebastian Schildt and come in four different sizes. They have an outer coating in frosted pewter and insides of smooth polished brass. Their weight and the way they were constructed ensure that the half globe design doesn’t teeter or roll over.

  • 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.

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by water, grease such as fingerprints or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive brass polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool, polishing cloths, sponges and the like since the surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.

  • 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.

    Sustainability in focus
