Pewter is one of the oldest known alloys, dating back to the Bronze Age. Fine pewter is a tin-based alloy consisting of at least 90% tin and the other 10% is some combination of silver, copper, bismuth, and antimony or more tin. At ASL Pewter, the alloy we use for all our casting, metal spinning and welding is 92% tin, 2% copper, 6% antimony. It’s the same alloy the London Pewterers’ Guild designated as “Fine Pewter” in 1635.
