About the Maker
The ancient craft of pewter manufacturing was revived in Ireland by Paddy Collins In 1974. His workshop is nestled in the heart of Ireland in Mullingar, County Westmeath. Pewter has existed since ancient Egyptian and Roman times and came to Ireland 800 years ago, becoming 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.
