Official licensed V&A product. Pewter Candle Votive embossed with all over peacock feather design supplied with candle (colour may vary) Not suitable for engraving supplied in carton box Height: 90mm base diameter: 75mm Sheffield, in South Yorkshire, has a world-renowned reputation in metal-working. Its furnaces and the craftsmen it produced were the driving forces behind the Industrial Revolution in the 19th Century. Pewter came to Britain with the Romans in the 2nd Century. Its production was revolutionised when an alloy without harmful lead was developed in Sheffield in 1769. With this tradition and its wealth of skilled individuals, it is no surprise Sheffield became home to several of the world's most respected Pewter manufacturers. Arthur Richard Wentworth came from that background to found Wentworth Pewter in 1949. His skills and craftsmanship gave the company early success. The Wentworth Pewter Company's commitment to excellence and innovation ensures his legacy continues. As well as applying a simplicity of style and a new quality of craftsmanship to traditional patterns, Wentworth Pewter works with several award-winning new designers, whose imagination and creativity have helped keep their products at the industry's leading edge. Officially licensed by the Victoria and Albert Museum, the V&A Peacock collection is inspired by the 19th Century Arts & Crafts movement. Their works and writings placed craftsmanship above technology and fostered interest in patterns from nature and more artisan based manufacture. With wonderfully simple shapes and decoration based on the natural beauty of the peacock tail-feather, this range reflects their aspirations.
