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 jewellery box has a Claddagh symbol embossed on the top. The Claddagh is a traditional Irish wedding ring with the symbols having intense resonance here. The heart signifies love, the hands means friendship and the crown represents loyalty. The interior of this jewellery box is covered in a black felt material making it even more ancient and luxurious looking. Mullingar Pewter is easy to store, clean and is so expertly crafted they can be used as display pieces.
