The manufacture of a pewter counter
Our pewter counter is following European and US food hygiene standards

We receive tin in ingots that we melt in a boiler. We cast in a mold some tin plates that we form on a wooden frame (plywood 30 mm or 2 × 18 mm).

For the borders, we sink the pewter in vintage steel molds (1870-1930) or we use modern creations.

Plates and borders are then welded together and then grated, filed, curled in a traditional way.
