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 goblet is part of the Mythical Collection which has scenes dedicated to Irish Folklore. This particular one features the iconic Queen Medb (Maeve), the Queen of Connaught in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology and who is most known for starting the Cattle Raid of Cooley in order to steal Ulster's prize bull. Mullingar Pewter is easy to store, clean and is so expertly crafted they can be used as display pieces.
