As you can imagine, pewter wine glasses are not something you can just run to Walmart and pick up on any given day. They are a specialty item that is rather hard to find.
Pewter is a metal alloy consisting mostly of tin. Along with the tin is a little bit of copper, antimony, bismuth, and lead. The copper and the antimony is what gives it its hardness, and the lead in the pewter gives it a bluish tent. For modern day pewter, you will not find any with the bluish tent because it is now no longer permitted for lead to be added, due to health concerns of lead. Pewter will have a low melting point, depending on exactly what the mixture of metals is, so it is very malleable.
Pewter was used a lot in the middle ages, and it would have been found especially in churches for the use of chalices and such. Which may account for some people's fascination with pewter wine glasses.
I myself love the look of pewter wine glasses, because many are done in the Gothic fashion, and I have a fascination with everything Gothic.
But Gothic is not the only style of pewter wine glasses, as you will see from some of the beautiful and elegant designs shown here.
