Pewter, which is the fourth most precious metal (after Platinum, Gold
and Silver), is comprised of tin and very small amounts of antimony and
copper, which add strength and durability. Arte Italica pewter is made
using 95% tin, which is the highest possible quality. To remove scratches, simply buff gently with
the finest grade (0000) steel wool. Pewter should never be used in the
oven or microwave. Arte Italica pewter is dishwasher-safe on a
low-heat/air-dry setting. Please avoid abrasive or citrus-scented
detergent. Prolonged exposure to citrus, vinegar and other acidic foods
can harm the finish of pewter, so please wash your pewter immediately.
Water-softening agents can sometimes damage the finish of pewter. Pewter is a naturally soft metal and is easily engravable.
