A rare variation of the common three-leaf clover, the four-leaf clover is, according to superstition, a sign of good luck.
Though it’s not clear exactly where this belief began, one of the earliest references to it was in an 1877 letter written to the monthly American children’s magazine, St. Nicholas, by an 11-year-old girl. “Did the fairies ever whisper in your ear that a four-leaf clover brought good luck to the finder?” she asked.
Today, you can bring a dash of that four-leaf clover good fortune to your home with this beautiful Irish blessing tea towel.
Surrounded in prettily-rendered illustrations of this special little plant on a crisp white background, the deep green text reads: “Wherever you go, whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you.”
Words to live by, no doubt about it.
A wonderful addition to the kitchen of any home bird or travel fanatic, this tea towel is made from 100% cotton that’s sure to stand the test of time and use, and is machine washable, which means there’ll never be any reason to shy away from putting it to work.
Utterly charming and perfectly practical? That’s about as Irish as it gets.
