Civil War Era Pewter Field Mug with Handle 1861 to 1865.

Pewter is a wonderful metal with a long history. The origin of the word Pewter is not fully known, but it is probably an English modification of the word spelter.  It was adopted with only slight variation by most of the continental European nations.  At an early period, Europeans became very fond of pewter wares.  The word pewter became peauter in Dutch, peutre, peautre or piautre in French, peltro in Italian and peltre in Spanish.  Roman pewter, the oldest known, which has been uncovered at various sites in England and elsewhere, was composed of tin and lead alone.  Occasional traces of iron are believed to be accidental.
