Pewter is a white metal, and the bright, Polished Finish is historically accurate. The Polished Finish showed the buying public, at a glance, that the work done was made of the finest alloy available and was the work of the Master Smith.
For our patrons who prefer a more primitive look, we offer our Museum Finish. We prepare the surface of the pewter and give it an instant patina. The resulting finish is a soft dark grey. Remember, this is a surface finish – it can be uneven and the white metal is underneath.
Below on the left are pieces with our Polished Finish. The picture on the right shows the Museum Finish.
