Tir Nan Og or Tir Na Nog (The Land of the Young). Tir Nan Og is the land to which the Irish faeries know as Tuatha de Danann (Too-ah day Thay-nan, or Tootha day danan) fled when their lands were taken by the Milesians. In Tir Na Nog they spend their days feasting, gaming, love-making and partaking of beautiful music. The faeries can even enjoy the thrill of battle, for anyone slain is resurected the following day. It is the paradise that mortals can only dream of.
Made in England. Crafted by master craftsman who are members of ‘The Worshipful Company of Pewterers’. This group was granted a charter in 1474 by King Edward IV for the legal manufacture of pewter throughout England. Many of the ancient pewter-smithing skills are still utilized today in the making of these flasks. They only manufacture the highest quality fine pewter drinking vessels.
