The Astor pewter cremation urn is crafted in the shape of a classic style vase with a bottom-opening panel.
A Classic Style and a Time-Honored Metal
Pewter is a popular metal used to create cremation urns today. Like most other modern metal alloys, pewter has its roots in Ancient Egypt. However, pewter was first used extensively during the Bronze Age in the Near East. Today, pewter cremation urns are designed with inspiration from works made by guilds in France and England during the Middle Ages.
Perfect for Home Display or Burial
Pewter urns can be kept at home, entombed in a cemetery columbarium niche or buried in an earth grave. Please note some cemetery regulations may require that this urn be placed inside of an urn vault prior to earth burial.
