Pewter is an alloy of tin and a variety of other metals. Pewter tankards are quite common. Pilgrim's badges were often made of cast pewter.

Since pewter has a low melting point, it is relatively easy to work with. Moulds can be made in soap stone or cuttlebone.

Pewter was eventually replaced by porcelain table wares during the 18th Century
