MATCH was founded in 1995 by David Reiss, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. David's love of Italy and its tradition of artisanship led to the creation of MATCH. Their pewter - a valuable metal composed of tin, copper, and antimony - is handmade by artisans in Northern Italy. Each piece is made with an alloy that is food safe, lead free, FDA approved and requires very little care.
To clean, hand wash in warm water with a liquid dish soap. Dry completely, as water allowed to dry on pewter may cause spots. Any spots that appear can be removed by polishing. MATCH flatware and dinnerware are dishwasher safe on low heat with liquid dishwasher soap. If you have hard water or a commercial dishwasher safe, we do not recommend using a dishwasher. MATCH stemware should only be washed by hand. Pewter is a soft metal with a low melting point. It should never be placed in an oven, microwave, or exposed to an open flame.
