Check the alloy that is being used to make whatever pewter you may
decide to carve. Yes, some do still contain lead. Any business
that sells pewter for casting will be able to tell you the component
metals. (If it were all tin, like as has been suggested, it would
be called "tin", not pewter.)
Safety is a good thing.
