Leaping Cat Malachite Box in Silver Pewter - Folksy

Shared by Owl and Cat in the Metal Crafts

Product Description:

This little rustic wooden box has been transformed with a lid of hand-tooled pewter . It features a beautiful genuine malchite cabochon. It is 26mm high and 36mm across. Perfect for tiny treasures, a great gift for a man or a woman for a 10th Wedding Anniversary, Fathers' Day, Mothers' Day, Birthday, Christmas 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.
