This little rustic wooden box has been transformed with a lid of hand-tooled pewter depicting the moon gazing hare of legend. A genuine rose quartz cabochon represents the moon. It is 26mm high and 36mm across. Perfect for tiny treasures and a great gift for Mothers' Day, Valentine's Day, Birthday, 10th Wedding Anniversary 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.
