Pewter Pitcher

Pewter is primarily an alloy of tin, with small amounts of other metals for durability.  Modern pewter is lead-free and safe to use. It consists of 95% tin, along with copper and antimony.  Pewter is easy to shape.

The first pewter pitchers were produced in Europe, where they served wine and provided water during travel, especially on boats and ships.  Pewter pitchers remained popular throughout early American history, serving water, milk, and other beverages in homes.  During the Victorian era, they were used for social gatherings and parties.
