Caring for your Pewter
On pewter, many people prefer to leave a dull gray patina. In the case of low-glow pewter, a soap-and-water bath is the most maintenance its finish ever needs.
If you prefer a brighter shine rub with a Cape Cod® Metal Polishing Cloth
Pewter is often displayed on oak but shouldn't be stored in a closed cabinet or drawer, because the organic acids in oak or in untreated, unseasoned woods promote pewter deterioration.
