New Holland Pewter is our
unique brand of fine lead -free pewter which has been made in
Australia for almost 25 years. The original master pattern is
designed in our studio, then hand crafted to create the three
dimensional model. There are several ways to crate the master
pattern but usually the 'lost wax' method is preferred. From
the wax pattern a bronze or silver master pattern is made. The
master pattern is then used to make what we call a 'master mould'
from which a quantity of originals are reproduced. These are
second generation masters and each one is carefully hand detailed
in order to make a production mould for centrifugal casting.
After casting each piece is individually handcrafted to remove
and imperfections and polished to a high glossy finish using
polishing techniques developed by us over a quarter of a century.
For generation, pewter
has been a highly regarded metal, fourth in line as the most
used metal in the jewellery industry after gold, silver and platinum.
Pewter could, in fact, be called, The Semi-Precious Metal because
it is the metallic equivalent of semi-precious stones and is
widely used in the jewellery, gift and souvenir industries.
Each piece is hand crafted
to perfection in our studio and, when polished to perfection,
looks like sterling silver.
To meet the international
standard for this beautiful alloy, pewter is classified as being
lead-free.The New Holland brand of pewter will not tarnish under
normal conditions and, because it is lead-free, is completely
non-toxic. When you look for pewter figurines, always look for
