The Fancy Mug Strap has a Celtic knot button and leather strap fastener, and the Basic Mug Strap has a metal snap fastener. Metal snap fasteners were invented in the 19th century. Therefore, the Fancy Mug Strap would fit into the Renaissance or Medieval time period better than the Basic Mug Strap.
What is Statesmetal™?
Metalworkers developed an aluminum alloy by the name of Statesmetal™ that resembles the warmth and beauty of pewter. Our highly skilled craftsmen hand pour molten Statesmetal™ into a sand mold, which they then destroy, never to use it again. This time honored technique creates the unique features that make each piece a true original. Workers then carefully finish these mugs by hand to create the quality appearance you expect.
Our supplier has been perfecting their Statesmetal™ process for over thirty years in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania.
Statesmetal™ products are food safe, and will not chip, crack, rust, or break under normal use.
To help preserve the finish, we recommend hand washing with a mild detergent.
Foods containing vinegar or fatty acids should be rinsed from the Statesmetal™ soon after use.
Although Statesmetal™ may gradually darken from the effects of everyday use, hard water or food stains, the original finish can be restored by polishing with any pewter or silver polish.
Recycled aluminum is used in the making of Statesmetal™.
