Take an exciting escape into Irish history with this Mullingar Pewter Medieval Irish Goblet!
Made of the gray tin alloy pewter, this goblet boasts a natural, elegant shine that is comparable to that of silver or other white metals, but it also has durability that keeps it from tarnishing the way other metals do.
Paying homage to Gaelic figures in Irish history, this goblet features a vividly detailed, etched rendering of Hugh O’Neill as its centerpiece among other uniformed gentlemen.
He is wearing a distinguished military uniform complete with a hat, as he cradles an ax with his left arm and holds the sword at his waist with his right hand.
Also known as the 2nd Earl of Tyrone or the Great Earl, Hugh was born into the powerful O’Neill family in the Ulster Province of Ireland in 1550.
From 1595 to 1603, he bravely led rebellions against English rule in Ireland, but he was ultimately defeated at Kinsale in 1601, eventually surrendering in 1603.
Complementing the striking illustrations of medieval military men on the goblet are lovely patterns at the bottom of the bowl and the foot.
Make this finely crafted goblet a special part of your dining ware collection that can be used for festive occasions!
