Pewter Snowshoe Ornament
Handcrafted Canadian Pewter.
Modern Pewter is an alloy comprised largely of tin (92%) with antimony and copper added in varying amounts. Watson Pewter is lead free.
Pewter requires very little care; wash by hand with soap and water. It can be cleaned with a paste of baking soda on a damp cloth or with silver polish. Test on an inconspicuous spot first.
Watson Pewter was founded by Gordon Watson in 1972. Since 1998, daughter Ruth and her husband Grant Robinson have handcrafted these pewter gifts in their backyard workshop near Tweed, Ontario.
