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 various animals in an Irish landscape. This particular one has the mighty duck, a beloved bird variety. There are scenes of a couple of ducks waddling through the reeds and another shows them in mid-flight. Mullingar Pewter is easy to store, clean and is so expertly crafted they can be used as display pieces.
