Pewter Welsh Dragon Bottle Stopper - Approx 10cm high including cork
Handmade in a family run workshop in Glynneath, Wales since 1979.
From the creation of the original sculpture through to the finished article involves many complex processes. The making of the original sculpture, castings of intricate detail, fettling to remove burrs, linishing, applying relief to highlight form and texture, applying acid etching, using enamel paints, soldering, making vulcanised moulds, satin finishing and polishing.
Pewter is one of the most valuable precious metals in common use today. Fine pewter is an alloy of 92% tin with copper and antimony added to strengthen and enhance casting. It can be highly polished or buffed to a satin finish.
Like gold and platinum pewter does not tarnish. As pewter ages it takes on a soft, even patina which is very pleasing to the eye. Modern pewter is safe and meant for everyday use. To care for your Celtic Seren pewter we recommend you wash the article in warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
This bottle stopper is crafted with only the finest pewter. Pewter like most precious metals have set standards, which specify it must contain 92% pure tin. This item conforms to British Standard 5140 and is guaranteed lead and nickel free.
