Thread Name: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
Subject: RE: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
If I wanted pitch, I would drink retsina! Pine flavoring and ale or beer seem an unfortunate pairing. What about carved hardwood tankards? I have an intricately carved old meerschaum pipe once owned by my wife's grandfather, a navy rear admiral. Would that be over the top? What's a birkin?
Doesn't pewter contain some lead?
