Why Pewter Chess Pieces?
Pewter dates back to the time of late Rome and was used by the Egyptians and was used heavily during the Middle Ages, which later gave way to glass and pottery.
Until the mass production of porcelain, glass and pottery pewter was the popular choice for tableware, the most familiar use of pewter was the tankard, made famous in the 17th century and 18th century until fading away.
Pewter became fashionable again in the late 19th century via medieval objects for decorating.
Today pewter can be found in figurines, collectible statues, and some aircraft and of course chess pieces.
