Italian Pewter - Why It's Special

What's special about Italian Pewter? It's beautiful, collectible, valuable, and infinitely usable!

Have you seen our fabulous display of Match Pewter at Lusso?  Want to know why its so special?  Come see for yourself at a trunk show this weekend!  In the meanwhile here is a primer:

*Pewter is lead-free and safe for everyday food use.

*It tarnishes very slowly, and requires almost no maintenance.

*Pewter blends well in every style of home; traditional, eclectic, and modern.

*It works beautifully as display and of course for serving.  It's versatile.

*It is heirloom quality and can be used and handed down for generations.  (Monogramming makes it an even more special family heirloom!)

* Pewter is an alloy, comprised of tin, copper, and antimony.  After platinum, gold, and sterling, tin is the next most valuable metal.

*Match pewter contains 95% of the highest quality tin.  Not all pewter is created equal.  In order for metal to be designated 'pewter' it must contain at least 92%. Match pieces are marked with the '95' stamp to show the high quality of pewter.

* Match pewter is handmade with centuries old techniques, in small family owned own factories in the north of Italy at the foot of the Dolomite mountains.  It is hallmarked with the unique factory crests.

*Match was the first wholesale company in the US to import Italian pewter in a comprehensive fashion, establishing pewter as a new and important tabletop feature.

*Match introduces new designs each season, and is proud to offer the broadest selection of the highest quality pewter available in the American market.

*Match offers serving pieces, dinnerware, flatware, crystal & pewter stemware, desk accessories, picture frames, and even bath sets.

*The entire Match collection is available through order at Lusso and much is on display every day and of course available to have giftwrapped and take with you!

*Match has just launched thier new custom Engraving program.  Engraved by a single old world style engraver on the East coast.

*Match is the exclusive importer of Berti Cutlery.  Knives, handmade by a single italian artisan, start to finish, and marked with thier initials.
