Pewter is composed of tin, with a small proportion of copper and antimony added to strengthen it. Unlike pewter in the past, today’s composition does not contain lead, and adheres to international standards.
As pewter has a low melting point and relative softness, it is an ideal material for craftsmen and designers to work with. The material also lends itself to different manufacturing techniques, some of which have been handed down through many generations.
Our beautiful collection of pewter products include traditional Armada dishes, wonderful children’s items and also fantastic gifts such as tankards and hip flasks. Made by some of the most highly regarded craftsmen in the world, these items are of impeccable quality.

The hip flask began to appear in the form recognised today in the 18th century, initially used by members of the gentry. However, less compact versions had been in production for several centuries. Notably, in the Middle Ages, there are several accounts of gutted fruit being used to store liquor. Don’t worry, there’s no gutted fruit featuring in our collection – instead a beautiful selection of traditional pewter flasks that make wonderful gifts when engraved with your personal message.
