Pewter Celtic Design Frames
They all dazzle in different ways due to the beauty of pewter being such a versatile material. Pewter frames are perfect as an engagement, wedding or christening presents because they are authentic, aesthetically pleasing items. The pewter that some of our picture frames are crafted from is actually a tin alloy with a history that goes as far back as 2,000 years to Roman Civilization. Its versatile combination of strength and malleability made it useful for creating anything from eating utensils to jewelry. What continues to make pewter so valuable today is that, unlike finer metals, pewter is tarnish-resistant, allowing it to maintain its brilliant shine over time, which makes pewter items perfect for passing down to generations as heirlooms.
