This small wooden box has been transformed with a lid of pewter, featuring a genuine amethyst cabochon. It measures 44mm,1.75ins,in height and is 55mm, 2.25ins, in diameter. The wood has been lightly tinted. Perfect for small treasures. A great gift for a man or woman for a 10th Wedding Anniversary, Birthday, Father's Day, Mother's Day or any other special occasion.
Each pewter piece has been individually made by hand (not cast) to my own design. A pattern is raised on a sheet of pewter, then the raised area is filled. The item is then mounted on a rigid base,chemically patinated, then polished.Modern pewter is lead-free and after patination has a shiny,almost reflective,finish.It does not blacken like silver and can be brightened, if necessary,with a smear of metal polish and a buffing with a soft cloth.
