Royal Selangor North America Trade Catalogue 2023


Royal Selangor pewter consists of as much as 97% of high quality tin, with a small proportion of copper and antimony added to strengthen the alloy. All Royal Selangor pewter is lead-free and food safe. Pewter’s unique characteristics, its low melting point and relative softness, make it ideal for craftsmen and designers to work with. Loved for its versatility and feel, it can be fashioned in a variety of finishes – a traditional soft satin lustre, a dazzling brilliance that rivals silver or a subdued ‘antique’ finish.

Royal Selangor produces high quality cast pewter, which is heavier and stronger than spun pewter. When struck gently, it produces a resonant sound.
