This small pewter dessert stand features an elegant design on the upper edge and is ideal for fruit, sweets, chocolates or pastries. Perfect for dessert or afternoon tea, the contents are raised up giving the whole table an air of sophistication and elegance; a real feast for the eyes for those dining at the table. This pewter fruit stand is also available in a shallower version, as in art.522. 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.
