There are no pewter objects known from this period (in fact, not many objcts at all!).
So, it is impossible to give a value to pieces which cannot exist!
How can you say that they were made in 1076?
In fact, you must be talking about repros...If there are marks, describe them.

Pewter is a soft cheep alloy comprised mostly of tin. Because it is so soft, the blacksmith middleman is removed from the process. This pewter was made into everyday items such as eating utensils, plates, cups, and candle holders.
The value of pewter in general is a great deal less than the value of gold because a pewter object may contain nearly about 95% tin. The other 5% may be a combination of materials including bismuth or lead. As to the value of old pewter mugs, the value is in that of the maker of the piece and the date of the piece. For example, a mug made and signed by Paul Revere would be more valuable than an unsigned piece of the same period. The general value of any antique item is usually the amount a buyer is willing to pay to acquire a piece.
A colonial pewter-er is much like a blacksmith. It forges items out of a mix of metals called pewter. Pewter is mostly made of tin. After heating pewter bars they would pour it into a soapstone mould. They mostly make dishware, but may make things like medallions. I hope this was helpful!

I believe the set is worth a couple hundred dollars. Are you interested in selling it?
technically yes, pewter is made from lots of metals such as tin, lead, copper etc
Pewter is a metal, its made from tin and a small amount of copper, so if it's pewter it's metal
There are two formulas, one containing 71.5 parts of tin to 27.8 of lead, the other 78.2 of tin to 21.7 of lead. I work with Pewter in hard Tech/ Metal works, Unleaded Pewter is made of Tin(soft metal) Copper(used in many alloys) and Antimony(metalloid). Pewter is made of the materials above
Yes. They can also be dangerous in an old pewter flask as pewter was once made with lead. Steel and glass are the best materials for a flask.
