It was very common in the past for a wayfarer or a pilgrim to carry a flask for refreshment during his travels. This is exactly why the pewter flasks and canteens, which went everywhere with travelers, were made. By looking at our pewter flasks and canteens, you can retrace these fantastic, adventurous journeys. Our pewter gift items are entirely handmade by our pewter artisans, and stamped with the GT brand name, which is our guarantee of both high quality alloy and an excellent finish. 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.
