Custom Pewter Countertops
Pewter countertops have been used in French bistros and brasseries for centuries. Pewter is malleable alloy metal composed mostly of tin. Today, pewter’s beauty has been rediscovered in 21st century design thanks to its classically sophisticated appearance, versatility, and sustainability. Differentiating between zinc and pewter can be confusing, as the metals look very similar when initially crafted and to add more confusion, bars in France are often called “le zinc,” when the famous Parisian bar surfaces are actually pewter.
Pewter is a more vibrant silver in hue than zinc. Pewter, like zinc is a living finish and it will develop a luxurious, muted grey or charcoal patina over time. La Bastille Metal Works offers this traditional French product with a vast selection of custom edgings. All of our metals are 100% food-safe, toxin-free, and the highest quality available for production. Pewter Countertops are low-maintenance, requiring only mild soap or non-abrasive cleanser to clean.
