Pewter countertops are a classic and elegant choice historically used in French Bistros and wine bars. A commonly used material in the Middle Ages as decorative and specialty items, pewter connotes an old-world aesthetic. Pewter is a very durable metal that will tell its story and convey its history.
Pewter countertops have a cool silver tone. Its matte finish will form a gray patina. While similar to zinc, pewter is a softer and more malleable metal.
How does this malleability affect pewter tops?
- The softness of the metal allows us to create curved shapes.
- Slight imperfections and marks that are common to metal countertops will be more prominent.
Pewter counter and bar tops are not meant to present a monolithic or monotone surface. The material has a 'living finish.' The finish will evolve over the lifetime of the countertops and will form a patina over time.
- The patina will take about a year to form.
- For those interested in a more even patina, we can apply a chemical patina in our shop.
- The patina is darker than what would occur naturally.
- Both natural and chemical patinas will continue to evolve throughout the lifetime of the counter or bar top.
