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 beaker 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 deer; one of the largest of deer species and native to Ireland. In one scene a majestic stag stands on a grassy hill looking into the distance. On another a hind gently walks with her fawn. Mullingar Pewter is easy to store, clean and is so expertly crafted they can be used as display pieces.
