Mullingar Pewter

Mullingar Pewter

The unique craft of pewter making in Ireland goes back over 800 years. The first Irish pewter craftsmen’s focus was on making domestic pewter utensils (think candlesticks, plates, tankards), and only the wealthy could really afford to buy them. Once pottery and glass became popular (and was cheaper), pewter use declined, but the recent pewter revival is due in part to Mullingar Pewter, founded by an Irish father and son in 1974. 

 Mullingar Pewter Company 

Mullingar-based Paddy and Peter Collins carefully trained Irish artisans in the ancient craft casting methods, assembly and delicate hand-finishing. These special skills take years to acquire and finesse, and as a result of these decades of practice, the fine quality of all Mullingar Pewter products really shines through. Pewter has staged a comeback due to the collective realization that 1) It’s easy to store and 2) It never really wears out (like silver) and 3) It has a beautiful, warm sheen. Mullingar Pewter’s stunning products are lead-free and are meant to be handed down from generation to generation.

Pewter Claddagh Gifts 

 Pewter home décor pieces like:

 Claddagh Jewellery Box - this charming heart-shaped Claddagh Jewellery Box will captivate anyone at first sight.

 Claddagh Unity Candle Holder - this exquisite pewter candle holder includes a center pillar candle holder that is adorned with the iconic Irish Claddagh.

 Mullingar Pewter Medium Claddagh Frame - this charming pewter frame boasts an immaculate shine that does not tarnish over time.

These products feature a widely popular Irish symbol, the Claddagh. The Claddagh emblem came from a fishing village named Claddagh in Galway, Ireland in the 17th century. One legend claims that an Irishman by the name of Richard Joyce created the first Claddagh in a ring design to honor his beloved who loyally waited for his return to Ireland after he was held in captivity for several years in a distant land. Another story claims that the Claddagh came to be through a woman named Margaret Joyce who wedded a wealthy Spaniard named Domingo de Rona in the 1500s. She became a rich widow when he passed away, and she used her wealth to build bridges in the Irish province of Connacht. For her generosity, an eagle dropped a Claddagh ring into her lap as a reward. The Claddagh consists of two hands representing friendship, and they unite to hold a heart signifying love. On top of the heart is a crown symbolizing the loyalty in a loving friendship.
