Pewter Pewter is a metal alloy that has been in use for centuries--you can find examples of it in museums that date back to Ancient Egypt and Rome, and Celtic artwork as well. In the Middle Ages it was used in churches and the homes of the wealthy, and over time it became more readily available, commonly used in taverns and for kitchenware. Now, it is considered a precious metal, and is fourth in line behind platinum, gold, and silver. It is popular among jewelry makers for its versatility and durability. The history of Irish pewter goes back at least 800 years, with early craftsmen producing items for domestic use (like plates, goblets, and candlesticks). In the 18th and 19th centuries, with the rising popularity of materials like pottery, porcelain, and glass, pewter’s use declined. It has seen a more recent revival of its former glory (and Mullingar is intrinsic to this revival). Originally, pewter was made from a blend of lead and tin. Today’s pewter is now lead-free, made from a blend of tin, copper, and antimony, and safe for a variety of everyday uses. Part of what makes pewter a great material for household items is its resistance to tarnishing. While other precious metals, like silver, are subject to tarnish and need constant care and upkeep, pewter is a metal of a different resilience. Polished pewter has a highly reflective surface much like sterling silver, and if it is used for decorative purposes, it will easily retain that highly polished sheen. Mullingar Pewter In 1974, Mullingar Pewter revived the ancient craft of Irish pewter, thanks to the dedication of Paddy Collins. Paddy’s son Peter now runs the business, and it employs local artisans from the town of Mullingar in County Westmeath. The company employs highly skilled artisans who are specially trained in the old-fashioned casting methods and produce their pieces in the traditional method. The company applies the highest standards of design and quality in every piece they produce and have received worldwide recognition for their finest grade pewter. Trinity Knots Celtic knots are distinctive symbols, perhaps some of the most recognizable artwork in Celtic history. The knots have been a part of Celtic and Irish artwork for centuries; they first started appearing in history around 450 A.D. There are many possible meanings for the knots--many related to the knots’ endless nature. In the pattern, there is no discernible beginning or ending, which is sometimes said to be a reflection of the timeless nature of the spirit, an uninterrupted life cycle, and the infinite cycle of birth and rebirth in both the physical and spiritual realms. In ancient times, gifts adorned with these mystic knots often bestowed best wishes for longevity of luck with new endeavors--perfect for a housewarming, wedding, or other special occasion.
