About this Piece

This Mullingar Pewter Pocket Watch is the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates a vintage touch. A great item to pair with a piece of traditional Irish clothing to get an authentic look. The front of the watch is decorated with a Shamrock, the most beloved and distinctly Irish symbol to come from the Emerald Isle. The watch itself is a manual wind-up and the workings can be seen from both the front face and back of the watch. The chain is 12" in length and has a pocket clip on the end designed to slip on to the cuff of a pocket.

About the Maker

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. 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. Mullingar Pewter combines traditional handcrafted techniques that take many years to perfect, along with modern advances, producing wonderful heritage gifts
