Description

PEWTER WOMBAT LARGE

The wombat is an herbivorous marsupial, which grows to a weight of 40 kilograms.  They excavate burrows with several entrances, where they reside during the heat of the day and emerge at dusk to feed on native grasses, rushes and plant roots in forest areas.

PEWTER

Since earlier times, craftsmen have been extracting a small amount of a shiny precious metal (Tin) from a mass of rock, and then using that metal to manufacture articles to decorate their homes.

Tin is the fourth most valuable metal in general use, after Platinum, Gold and Silver, and has been used to manufacture Pewter since those early times.

Modern Pewter is an alloy that contains 92% Tin, 6% Antimony and 2% Copper.  The Antimony is used to harden the alloy, and the Copper is used to improve its workability.

To maintain the finish of your Pewter articles, wash in hot water using liquid soap and rinse in almost boiling water.  Immediately dry and polish with a soft cloth.

Proudly crafted in Australia by Aradon Pty Ltd. using Australian Tin.
