How to Care for Patriot Pewter
The Look of Sterling without the Maintenance
Genuine Pewter was the tableware of Colonial America.
Chinaware then took its place as the adverse properties of lead were recognized.
Today, pewter is completely food safe and is available in traditional shapes and satin finishes.
However, only PATRIOT PEWTER today employs Genuine Pewter to simulate the look of sterling silver, such as:
HIGH POLISH SHINE
All this is achieved without the constant tarnishing and polishing required of silver or silverplate---PATRIOT PEWTER is low maintenance.
PATRIOT PEWTER uses a special, food safe alloy that is stronger than traditional pewter.
PATRIOT PEWTER is a shining alternative to the less expensive aluminum alloys of “alternative metals”.
CARE AND USE
Hand wash in warm, soapy water, quickly rinse and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not place any pewter in a dishwasher.
Careful use will add to the patina of the metal.
