Pewter Door Knocker (7" high) - Shamrock.
A classic Irish motif, the Shamrock has been recognised as the symbol of Ireland for centuries. It is said that Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, used the shamrock to describe the Holy Trinity - The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit - each represented by a leaf.

The ancient craft of pewter making was revived in Ireland by Paddy Collins in Mullingar in 1974. Paddy's son Peter now runs the business and it employs 16 people from the local area. Most of the pieces are still made in the traditional way in our own workshop by Irish men and women, specially trained in the old casting methods, meticulous assembly and delicate hand finishing.
