Original Wilhelm Schweizer Pewter
Bavarian Pewter Art - A centuries old tradition continued.
Wilhelm Schweizer Authenticity: Each piece is a truly handmade item, as each one is cast individually from molds carefully engraved in slabs of slate. The accuracy and intricacy of the finished pieces are testimony of the pewter caster's art and skill.
Each piece is hand painted by individual artists. Any small imperfections that you might notice are a sign of their handcrafted workmanship. To preserve the artists' originality, they have not been subjected to any mechanical processes.
History: Diessen, a small town located on the shores of beautiful Lake Ammersee in the heart of Bavaria's romantic country side, has a rich historical and artistic heritage, which dates back to the 9th century.
During medieval times two important trade routes joined ways here, thus spurring the economic and cultural development of the region.
