Manufacturer: Mullingar Pewter

Combining the Celtic design with the classic Irish symbol of friendship, this hand-made Claddagh picture frameset is perfect for cherishing photos of precious moments with dear friends. These frames by Mullingar Pewter are made only of the purest, lead-free pewter available, and each frameset includes two frames: One measuring 9” x 7”, and the second measuring 7” x 5”, making these ideal choices for framing larger family photos or special moments for those you love most. These designs are beautifully engraved in pewter, which is rapidly gaining popularity for its wear-resistance and warm sheen. Handcrafted in Ireland by Mullingar Pewter’s team of unparalleled craftspeople, these frames feature lovely Celtic Trinity Knots and the famous Irish Claddagh. Displayed at the center top of each frame, the Claddagh hand-design illustrates how true friendship is rooted in love and loyalty, with two hands of friendship holding a loyalty-crowned heart of love. Popular on traditional Irish rings and other fine jewelry, the Claddagh design has served as a symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship around the Emerald Isle since the 17th century. The first Claddagh designs appeared on rings made and sold around the fishing village of Claddagh in Galway. The rings were often used as engagement rings, although they were also given between close friends, and mothers to their daughters as they came of age. The heart symbolizes love, the hands represent friendship, and the crown means loyalty. As the popularity of the rings has grown steadily since they first appeared those hundreds of years ago, the design has made its way onto a number of other special heirlooms and commemorative gifts in Ireland. The Celtic trinity knot is another important symbol in Irish and Celtic history, one that is steeped legend and mystery dating back approximately 5000 years. The distinctive knot designs on our picture frames are the perfect accent to a frame whose sole purpose is to enshrine a special friend or moment. The knot has been used to symbolize a few sentiments throughout the ages. Christians have used the knot imagery as a symbol of the Holy Trinity, and Wiccans and pagan groups have long used the knot to represent the threefold nature of the Goddess as a mother, maiden, and crone. It is also popularly used to symbolize the three stages of life, the three elements of earth, sea, and fire, and other important things that appear in threes. Today we are fortunate to offer this frameset and many other special pieces that feature both the trinity knot and Claddagh designs, and we hope you will enjoy having these in your home as much as we do. The ancient art of pewter craftsmanship came to Ireland by Mullingar Pewter in 1974, building on the artisanal knowledge and meticulous process that has been in practice for the past 800 years. Headquartered in Greatdown, Co. Westmeath, Mullingar Pewter welcomes visitors to their workshop to witness their craftspeople at work, and of course to browse the many unique and special items the company produces on a daily basis. Don’t forget! These picture-frames ship anywhere in the U.S. for free, so do not miss your opportunity to own these amazing pieces your friends and family will cherish for years.
