Mullingar Pewter was established in 1974, with most of the pieces still being made in the traditional way in the Mullingar workshop. 16 local men and women are employed, specially trained in the old casting methods, meticulous assembly and delicate hand finishing. The history of Irish Pewter goes back at least 800 years.Originally pewter was made from a composition of lead and tin. Today, the raw materials consist of 95% tin with the balance made up of copper and antimony.
