Vintage Find - Pewter Bird
I've been having a huge de-clutter of my belongings recently. As part of that process I've been donating waaay more to charity shops than I have been buying from them.
However - I couldn't leave this guy on the shelf looking all sad and grubby.
A little bit of googling taught me that he's part of a pewter salt and pepper set (although the holes in his head kind of gave that away. I haven't tried cleaning pewter before so headed over to howtocleanstuff.net and a little wash, a vinegar, flour and vinegar paste, and a soft cloth later he looks like this...
So cute..so shiny...so chubby.
Bye for now!
