Pewter, in my words

pewter charger platepiwear : pewter

The Fennas word for pewter (metal alloy) is piwear. PI wear brand T-shirts and Piwear t-shirts and clothing with the Greek letter Pi on them.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for pewter is piwter, and the Irish word for pewter is péatar.

The picture shows a pewter charger plate. Pewter tableware was common from the Middle Ages up until the 18th and 19th centuries. Pewter is a tin alloy.

This is a new word, not a revision.
