I have to admit, I simply love this door knocker! What better way to show your Irish pride to your visitors than with a Irish pewter door knocker?
This particular door knocker features the Irish Claddagh as its main focus. As you probably know, the Claddagh symbol represents love, loyalty and friendship. Its an old Irish symbol, that traces its roots back hundreds of years to Richard Joyce – credited with designing and making the first Claddagh ring.
This door knocker is handcrafted in Ireland by Mullingar Pewter. Their craftsmen are trained in the old methods of pewter casting and finishing. Their detailing is absolutely superb. Oh, and don’t worry about the mounting hardware – its all included. The perfect Irish gift!
For those of you not familiar with Mullingar Pewter, they make some of the finest pewter in Ireland. Every piece is hand-finished and their quality is excellent! We’ve just loaded a new style of Unity candle candlestick at Celtic by Design, and I’m sure you’ll agree that these are truly beautiful pieces.
Each candlestick has a continuous Celtic pattern around the exterior. The two taper holders can hold any “normal” size of taper candle. The larger centerpiece candlestick can take either a 3 or 4 inch Unity candle.
In addition to actually casting pewter, Mullingar Pewter is also responsible for reviving this ancient art in Ireland. Each piece is a treasure, and is bound to have a special place in your home for many, many years to come.
A good Irish gift for the groomsmen at your Irish wedding can actually be a tough one! You want something cool, something Irish, and something that they’ll remember. It’s a big plus if they’ll use it too!
What about whiskey measures from Mullingar Pewter? They’re unique (i.e. you don’t see them everyday) and you can have them engraved. Best place for the engraving is on the smooth area just below the rim, or at the bottom, if you’d prefer. We think these are a perfect gift for the “lads”!
