    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.

  • Design

    The sculptor, pewter artist and craftsman Nils Fougstedt were one of the first people to design pewter products for Firma Svenskt Tenn. In 1927, he designed this lovely pewter box, whose smooth, the unadorned surface can advantageously be supplemented with an elective monogram or a personal engraving. The original version was made in five different versions, one bearing an engraved vers by Estrid Ericson. 

     

    Designer

    Nils Fougstedt

    Nils Fougstedt (1881-1954) was a sculptor and pewter artists. Together with Estrid Ericson, he opened a store and workshop for the manufacture and sale of pewter objects in 1924. The store later resulted in Estrid Ericson founding the company Svenskt Tenn and Nils Fougstedt continued to design several beautiful objects for the company.

  • 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.

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by water, grease such as fingerprints or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive brass polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool, polishing cloths, sponges and the like since the surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.
