About Pewter:
**************

Pewter is an alloy whose main element is tin. Copper, lead, bismuth, zinc, and antimony added in varying amounts give the mixture its variable weight and hardness.
It was used mainly in the home. It was the common table ware of Colonial America in the 18th century and was used well into the 19th century. Nearly every conceivable form was made of pewter: plates, basins, serving dishes, mugs, tankards, pots and more.

How was it made?
Most pewter objects were made by casting the melted alloy into molds, which were made most frequently of bronze, brass, and bell metal. The products of the molds were then trimmed, spun on a lathe, and soldered together to make the finished piece.

How old is pewter?
Pewter has been in use for several thousand years. The Egyptians, Greeks, and the Chinese were proficient in the art of making pewter. Roman pewter has been excavated in Britain, suggesting a pewter industry of reasonable size in the third and fourth centuries.

This is my first bad review. Purchased this in November and one entire month later they hadn't shipped it out. Tried contacting them three times in Etsy and escalated in both Etsy and PayPal before they would respond. Finally got my money back 5 weeks later with no explanation. Buyer beware!
