About the Maker
Paddy Collins revived the ancient craft of pewter manufacturing in Ireland. In 1974 he opened his workshop in the town of Mullingar, County Westmeath in Ireland's midlands. Pewter has existed since ancient Egyptian and Roman time and came to Ireland 800 years ago. It quickly became fashionable among the wealthy and for ceremonial purposes. Mullingar Pewter combines traditional handcrafted techniques that take many years to perfect, along with modern advances (modern pewter no longer contains lead, for instance), producing wonderful heritage gifts.
