With a commitment to quality, service and price they soon became the UK's largest manufacturer of quality pewter giftware.
Pewter Pewter, an easily worked alloy, has been in use in Britain for near on 2000 years. Pewter remained a cottage industry until 1770 when a new pewter alloy which used Antimony and Copper instead of Lead was developed in Sheffield, it became known as Britannia metal and was capable of being given a bright polish.
Knurled 1 Pint Tankard Pewter tankards are a great retro style gift to mark any special occasion, and the styling of this one pint tankard really feeds into this fact perfectly. The straight sided tankard has a highly polished finish to the body which is split by the inclusion of a knurled rope design in the middle, which stretches around the whole body of this tankard. This feature combines beautifully with the ornate Georgian style handle to give the tankard a historic feel as well as being aesthetically pleasing. Manufactured according to methods which are drawn from generations of craftsmanship experience within the pewter industry.
