Pewter is essentially tin, but to be worked, it has to be mixed with other metals. In past centuries, the Company laid down strict specifications for the alloy and, up to the end of the eighteenth century, monitored pewter manufacture throughout England.
The Company of Pewterers is a historic and continually evolving Company with medieval origins as a City of London Trade Guild. The Pewterers aim to have an active, inclusive and diverse membership of individuals from various backgrounds. A vital aspect of the social side of the Company is maintaining a lively and enjoyable calendar of events, engaging all our members regularly.
The principal activities are promoting the pewter trade in the UK, charitable endeavours, and supporting the City of London government and the Armed Forces of the Crown.
