About the Maker

Mullingar Pewter combines traditional handcrafted techniques that take many years to perfect, along with modern advances, producing wonderful heritage gifts. Pewter has existed since ancient Egyptian and Roman times (as an alloy of tin mixed mainly with copper and antimony), and came to Ireland 800 years ago, becoming popular among the wealthy and for ceremonial purposes.

In 1974, Paddy Collins opened his workshop in the town of Mullingar, County Westmeath. It is here in the Irish midlands that Paddy revived the ancient craft of pewter manufacturing in Ireland.
