Elevate your beverage by placing it upon this gleaming, handspun pewter coaster. The coaster also fits a standard sized bottle of wine, spotlighting your red or white to go with dinner. To create the coasters, sheets of metal are turned slowly on a lathe until a desired circular shape is achieved. Handmade from English pewter, which holds itself to standards set out by the European Committee for Standardization, the coasters are 92% tin, a metal that is an essential trace mineral. The malleability of tin requires the production of pewter to include other metals, such as bismuth, antimony or copper, though, in order to be properly called pewter, tin values must reach at least 85%.
Hand wash with hot water and soap. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not place in dishwasher. Pewter will keep its shine with minimal maintenance. It doesn't tarnish like silver, but if it does start to dull, rub with a bit of standard metal polish using line strokes (not circular).
Arthur Richard Wentworth founded his pewter company in 1949 in the traditional steel-producing city of Sheffield, England. A metal alloy, pewter has been around since the bronze age and preceded glass, porcelain and plastic as the household material of choice. These coasters contain a minimum of 92% tin. Due to the malleability of tin, the remaining 8% of pewter is a mix of hardening metals, mostly copper and antimony.
