Pewter vase or oil bottle (?)

Item number: 07030106

Price: $30

A stunning Art Deco style kiln-shaped pewter vase (?) or oil bottle made in Norway (stamped). stands 17.5 cms tall.

Contray to popular belief fine pewter (and pewter made today) contains no lead...the main ingredient is tin (85%)Sn, then 6-7% copper, 6% Bismuth and 1-2% Antimony (symbol Sb). Some early 19th century layman pewter contained 4% to 20% lead. Also contrary to popular belief small qualties of laed are required by the body in its biological functioning, and the main poisoning effect of lead (not that most pewters contain lead anyhow) is in the impairment of brain development in infants.

Bronze is made from copper and tin and is highly priced compared to brass, which is made from copper and zinc. The main reason is that tin is expensive. Since most pewter is more than 80% tin (Sn) it is clearly undervalued...mainly because of the lead scare, but as noted most pewter does not even contain lead, contrary to popular belief

Some of my pewter was/is also located in "metalware"...before I started this new category.
