Tampers & Tools: Peterson Sherlock Holmes Pewter Tamper

Product Number: 001-545-0047

Pewter is a classic material; first introduced during the Bronze Age (unsurprising, given that two of its major components - tin and copper - are shared with bronze), it saw common and widespread use in Europe from the Middle Ages until it was superseded by glass, silver, and porcelain beginning in the 18th century.

Despite falling out of use in common objects, its dark metallic luster and reassuring, solid weight has kept it popular for use in decorative objects, such as Peterson's Sherlock Holmes tamper. It's difficult to think of a better material to accentuate the confidence and resolution seen in Peterson's depiction of one of the world's most famous, albeit fictional, investigative minds.
