A centuries old German tradition! Since 1796, this rich tradition of handmade pewter ornaments has been kept alive by the family of Wilhelm Schweizer. Their designs on originals are often hundreds of years old. Each piece is truly a handmade item, as every one is cast individually from molds carefully engraved in slabs of slate. Each molds "life" is limited to about one thousand castings after which a new mold has to be carved to insure the quality and richness of even the tiniest detail. The accuracy and intricacy of the finished pieces are testimony of the pewter caster's art and skill.
After casting, each ornament is handpainted by an artist. The detail is exquisite. There is absolutely no mechanical process involved in the making of these ornaments.
