Amuse shells made of silver tin
The amuse shells are cast in silver-tin. Tin can you finish in a number of ways: in an antique colour, matte or high polished. The high polished version is called silver tin, but there is no silver in it at all. Centuries ago, when you wanted to purchase a silver tea-or coffee set, but you had less to spend (or wanted to spend less), you would ask the tin-smith to make a silver tin set. The tin-smith made the set of tin and polished it, just as long until the tin shined like a mirror. This was sold as silver tin. In order to keep it shiny, you need to polish the silver tin at least once a year. There are still many products made of silver tin, for an example the Championship bowl of the Royal Dutch Football Association.
