Elegant Pewter Trophy Awards and Presentation Plates
Pewter is a special material with a long history. Evidence of pewter use dates back to cultures like the Romans and the Celts. Pewter is a metal alloy of antimony and copper, among other materials. It’s soft, so it can be shaped into all kinds of elegant designs. We offer a wide array of pewter cup trophies, which play on the silver Olympic cup trophies the Greeks used to present winners at their games over 2000 years ago. There’s something about pewter trophy awards you just can’t get with any other material; the distinctive blueish-silver finish combined with its intricate filigree details, makes these pieces almost feel like cherished artifacts of a tradition of ambition and success.

Understanding the Meaning and Application of Silver Trophies and Awards
First of all, there’s nothing more prized in awards, corporate or otherwise, than gold and silver. Gold is first, of course, but silver is perhaps even more elegant, and is also a precious metal. Pewter is supplemented silver, meaning it’s mixed with other metals. This forms a malleable and reflective metal that can be made into intricate designs you just can’t achieve with rougher metals like iron. Gifting a professional award made of silver or pewter is a powerful message about care and investment (read: craftsmanship and cost). Silver has been used as a currency for thousands of years, and as a gift is a symbol of trust. As a recipient, it is a symbol of status, making both great options if you’re looking for recognition award ideas that make a big statement.
Truly Unique Trophies and Awards
Our selection of high-quality pewter cup trophies are available for custom engraving. Give a timeless, traditional, high-end award made for a champion. Pewter trophies have a unique appearance; they’re much bluer of a silver color than sterling silver. And the softness of pewter means it’s possible to shape extremely detailed, intricate designs into pewter trophy cups. Pewter trophy awards are much like crystal awards: the delicateness of the material as well as its detailed design makes it loftier and more valuable. Trophy awards – and all recognition pieces, for that matter – should be made with the utmost craftsmanship, and pewter is a material that really showcases that.
