This beautiful pewter font is handcrafted by artisans in Ireland.
The early history of pewter in Ireland goes back nearly 800 years. The pewterers of this era produced the first utensils for domestic use, consisting mainly of tankards, plates and candlesticks.
Around the 12th Century, pewter was only within the reach of the wealthy and could be found on the tables of the wealthy in castle halls and in the homes of the rich merchants. Later, its use spread into cottages, middle class homes, and taverns.
This pewter font was handcrafted by Irish artisans who are trained in the old casting methods. Each piece is meticulously made.
Makes a wonderful addition to any church or home.
