This generously proportioned, oval pewter basin is perfect for serving vegetables or other foods. Suitable for everyday use, its natural, candid beauty will make mealtimes a pleasant, elegant experience. Hand-made by our pewter artisans, this basin is also available in two other, smaller sizes, as in art. 530 and 564. 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.
