    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.

    The pewter brooch shaped as a rope was designed by Svenskt Tenn founder Estrid Ericson in the 1940s, inspired by the Swedish History Museum’s collection of jewellery from the Bronze Age.

    Estrid Ericson

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer.

  • 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.
