A delicately detailed pewter figural mallard mom sits upon her nest, covering your butter on the porcelain butter plate beneath her.
Pewter is easy to care for and never needs polished. For pieces that contact foods, clean them in warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth. If you feel they need an occasional polish to maintain that ?show room finish? use a quality polish. When it comes to polishing, practice on the back or bottom of a piece to perfect your technique and see if you like the results.
