V&A Pewter Candle Snuffer - Royal Selangor
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.
Each piece is hallmarked with Royal Selangor’s maker’s mark, Sn920 for tin content, and the tiger’s head for country of manufacture.
