Inviting to the touch, and weighty in the hand, match dinnerware pieces are elegant chameleons, transitioning effortlessly between every day use and more formal affairs.
Match pewter is handmade in northern Italy, in family-owned workshops, by artisans who have honed their craft using methods gleaned over many generations. In their skilled hands, this understated yet luxurious material is fashioned into modern heirlooms that are both functional and decorative.
An original piece of match Italian pewter can easily be identified by the presence of at least two hallmarks, or stamps, in the metal. The match hallmark (the letter “M”) can be found on many pieces, as well as the number “95”, indicating the tin content. Additionally, a piece may bear a mark representing the city where it was made, as well as the mark of the workshop.
