How is pewter made and is it bad for your health to drink from a pewter mug?
- Joe B
The best way to get info on things like this is just to Google the key word. A quick check confirmed a dim memory: pewter very often contains a signicant amount of lead, which is toxic. It's a bad idea to drink from a pewter mug unless you first check it for lead.
