Q: The pictured item is a pewter teapot my grandparents got when they lived in Europe in the 60s or 70s, marked Royal Holland Pewter on the bottom. I've been using it for some time and the handle is now starting to show signs of wear. This covering on the handle is absolutely essential to prevent finger-burning, but the current material, which appears to be old, brittle plastic, is flaking off in several places and looks like it'll only get worse in the next few months.

So, I'm looking for ideas on how to replace or repair what's remaining. Any DIY ideas?
