Details


The purity of the Pewter ware is of utmost importance, the utensils should be usable without any risks. The 95% tin guaranties food standard and is far above that required by law. The "Zinn-Becker" stamp on the bottom guaranties that.

     

An artist has to work up to 300 hours on a cast form to create the motif in detail by hand and with a small chisel as a relief negative and in reverse.

With the help of a very large magnifying glass the artist is able to create the tiniest forms. An artistic performance of excellence is the basis of such a special "Zinn-Becker", a "work of art".

The engraving of the utensil is a very important quality symbol for the pewter collector. The enlarged copy of the "Zinn-Becker-Gravur" shows you the quality of high grade precision engraving.
