    Pewter is a silvery-white metallic element that is extracted primarily from the mineral tinstone or cassiterite. It is one of the few metals that have been in use since prehistoric times.

    Pewter has a lower melting point than other metals, which means that candles should never be left to burn down completely. This can cause the pewter to melt and lose its shape, which cannot be restored. As a precaution, blow out the candles when there is still 4-5 cm left.

  • Design

    This Egyptian-inspired candle holder in pewter was designed by Edvin Öhrström in 1928. It is most likely the Horus god from Egyptian mythology. Initially, the design was going to be the handle of a hand mirror, but it was changed into a candle holder by Estrid Ericson.

    Edvin Öhrström

    Edvin Öhrström was a Swedish sculptor, glass- and visual artist. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and the Technical School in Stockholm, at the Académie Colarossi, Académie Scandinave Maison Watteau and Fernand Léger at the Académie Moderne in Paris. He began working at Orrefors Glassworks in 1936.

  • Care instructions

    Pewter is a soft material that requires careful treatment. We recommend using cotton gloves when handling pewter. Objects that are not being used can be stored in a plastic or felt bag to avoid scratching.

    It is generally recommended to avoid using polish on pewter, since it can cause scratches. To remove fingerprints and other stains, rinse the pewter in warm water with a small amount of dish detergent. Dry with a soft cloth. For more advanced cleaning of pewter objects we recommend a professional restorer, for example, KA Johnsson in Stockholm.

    Never leave candles unattended and make sure to blow them out before they reach the candle holder. Keep in mind that some surfaces may be extra sensitive to heat. Take extra caution if you are unsure of the qualities of the table top.
