Product Details

The medallions are "Fine Pewter", a mixture of over 90% tin with antimony or bismuth. Unlike antique and lower quality modern pewter, there is no lead used in this material. It is, therefore, perfectly safe for use with food. The medallion artist, Master Engraver and Wildlife Artist Franz Marktl, came to the United States from Austria over forty years ago. Even then his engraving was highly sought after the world over. Each master engraving begins with a detailed drawing that is then transferred onto a thick sheet of sterling silver. The artist uses handmade tools to remove bits of metal, sculpting every detail. A special mold is then made at the Heritage Pewter foundry to faithfully reproduce the intricacy of the engraving. The Decanter holds 24 oz. Each double old-fashioned glass holds 12 oz.

We have chosen the American Bison as the subject matter for this bar set. Hunted almost to extinction, these nomadic grazers are no longer on the endangered species list, with four purebred herds on public lands in North America, including Yellowstone National Park, Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota, Henry Mountains in Southern Utah, and Elk Island National Park in Alberta, Canada. The Yellowstone Park Bison Herd is the only continuously wild bison herd in the United States. It formed naturally from 23 individual bison that survived the mass slaughter of the 19th century and now numbers somewhere between 3,000 to 3,500 head.
