Pewter countertops were made famous in French brasseries. They were often called zinc bars. In reality, zinc was never used.
The zinc bar name came from the French “zingueurs “. Zingheurs were sheet metal workers who specialized in soft metals like zinc, pewter and later aluminum. They used pewter to make the popular zinc bars.

It can be washed with a mild soap and water. It is safe and lead-free.
