This handy pewter canister is characterized by a simple and refined design, and can be used in the kitchen to hold biscuits, cereals, pasta or spices, or can be used as a decorative element in your home. Our pewter canister is available in two other less capacious versions as in art. 479 and 480. The alloy we use for casting each object is tin, bonded with antimony and copper. The Italian pewter we use meets all EU and US requirements for food safety.
