Precious metal that transcends time and space
A Royal Selangor piece exudes an elegant sculptural presence derived from the softness and versatility of pewter which is fashioned in a variety of finishes – a traditional soft satin lustre, a dazzling brilliance that rivals silver or a subdued ‘antique’ finish.
Royal Selangor high quality cast pewter consists of 92% to 97% tin, with a small proportion of copper and antimony added to strengthen the alloy – the highest international standard for pewter. It is heavier and stronger than spun pewter. When struck gently, it produces a resonant sound.

Depending on the finish, pewter can be cleaned using two major methods:
- Wash in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately with soft flannel.
- Polish as silver, with a good brand of silver polish and soft flannel.
Pewter drinkware is able to preserve the ideal temperatures of hot or cold drinks for longer periods of time.
While most metal surfaces dull over a period of time, pewter does not tarnish or corrode easily. Instead it develops a pleasing subdued tone unique to the metal over time and with use.
Pewter swarf at the factory is collected and melted to be used in producing new pewter products.
