This beautiful pewter Holy Communion Frame for boys makes a wonderful gift for that very special day. The early history of pewter in Ireland goes back at least 800 years to the first pewter utensils for domestic use, consisting primarily of tankards, plates and candlesticks. Around the 12th century, pewter was only available to the wealthy, found on the tables of castle halls and in the homes of the rich merchants and churchmen. The ancient craft of pewter-making was revived in Ireland in the 1970's. This Holy Communion Frame was crafted in the traditional way by Irish artisans, specially trained in the old casting methods of meticulous assembly and delicate hand finishing. This First Communion frame can be engraved to personalize this special occasion.
