What is Pewter?
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally between 85 and 99 percent tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth and lead. Copper and antimony act as hardeners while lead is common in the lower grades of pewter, which have a bluish tint. It has a low melting point, around 170–230 °C (about oven temperature), depending on the exact mixture of metals.
The word pewter is probably a variation of the word spelter, a colloquial name for zinc. Hebrew: פיוטר; French: Alliage plomb-étain; Spanish: Peltre; Russian: Пьютер.
