Pewter is a malleable metal alloy composed mainly of tin.
Loyfar pewter is completely lead-free with a composition of 90% tin (Sn), 5% silver (Ag), 5% antimony (Sb)/copper (Cu).
Loyfar pewter is food safe and meets EU health legislation governing the migration of heavy metals into foodstuffs.
Pewter should never be used in an oven/microwave, on a stove/hob, or exposed to a direct flame.
Pewter does not tarnish like silver or copper and will retain its shiny finish with the minimum of care.
Pewter should be washed by hand in warm soapy water and dried with a soft cloth. It should never be washed in a dishwasher.
Under certain conditions the shiny finish may dull slightly. This can easily be restored by polishing with a soft dry cloth. Proprietary metal polishes should not be used. For best results polish in straight lines, not in circles.
