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 fashionable among the wealthy and for ceremonial purposes. This ancient craft of pewter making was revived in Ireland by Paddy Collins in Mullingar in 1974. Mullingar Pewter consistently show the highest standards of design and quality control in the production of these exquisite gifts. Their designs are taken from the Celtic crosses and many monuments that dot the Irish countryside.
