by Mullingar Pewter
The history of Irish Pewter can be traced back to more than 800 years ago. Today this ancient craft is still being performed in Mullingar by a team of Irish men and women that are highly trained in the skills of delicate hand finishing, meticulous assembly and old casting methods.
Mullingar Pewter products have a distinctive medieval appearance and the owner will feel they are ancient, mythical and a precious gift from the past.
This unique drinks measure is part of their Woodlands Collection which feature three intimate scenes in the lives of various animals in an Irish landscape. This particular one shows the Red Fox; one of the most common mammals in Ireland. In one scene a fox huddles in their den. Another shows a vixen soothing her cub. Whereas another shows a beautiful fox running in the countryside.
Mullingar Pewter is easy to store, clean and is so expertly crafted they can be used as display pieces.
