The development of new techniques in Sheffield at the end of the 18th century brought a revival of pewter.
From 1875-1914, less expensive steins (stoneware and glass) had fancy pewter lids and thumblifts, while the more expensive ones (like Mettlach) were still made with ceramic inlaid lids.
The closed hinge was used mostly until 1875, when the open hinge came into general use.
Yet another resurgence occurred around 1970 as a result of the formation of the Association of British Pewter Craftsmen, which promotes high standards.
Its members are required to touchmark their finished products - the touchmark being a symbol of quality and craftsmanship.
They have a handle and a hinged lid; are decorated and sometimes hand-painted.
