What is Pewter?

Pewter products are hand forged from steel, which is a strong alloy of iron, carbon, and trace amounts of other elements. This combination of materials provides a durable base which undergoes various manufacturing techniques to create the distinctive, textured appearance of Pewter.

How to Clean Pewter Hardware?

On the whole, Pewter hardware doesn't need much to keep it looking its best but there are a few steps you can take to help. Firstly, we recommend oiling any and all moving parts during initial installation to increase the mechanical lifespan of your product. This process can be repeated every so often to ensure all parts operate smoothly.

For Pewter hardware used in damper environments (like bathrooms, kitchens and outdoors), an oily cloth can be used to occasionally wipe over the surface of the product to aid protection against environmental elements.

How to Style Pewter Hardware?

Pewter has a rich, earthy appearance which pairs well with a wide variety of styles. Often, Pewter is seen in rustic interiors like farmhouses and country cottages alongside natural materials including oak, brick, and stone. In these properties, Pewter often makes an appearance on ledge & brace doors and timber windows in the form of T hinges, thumblatches, and window stays.

However, due to the versatile nature of this finish it can also be used in modern and contemporary settings where it's complemented by soft colours such as blue, pink, cream, and green. In these types of properties, Pewter door handles, cabinet knobs, and drawer pulls are popular choices.
