Originally created by Frederick Slater in the 1880s, our Belleek Classic Harp Shamrock Teacup & Saucer is a true reflection of Irish quality and craftsmanship, and is a testament of Ireland’s cultural heritage. The harp-shaped handle represents not only Ireland’s history of poetry and song, it is also the official national symbol of Ireland, and has been since the early 1500s. The delicate, hand-painted shamrock motif is another cultural homage to St. Patrick and his work to bring Catholicism to Ireland beginning in the fifth century. Legend has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock as a representation of the Holy Trinity, three leaves connected to a single stem. This analogy is believed to have helped the Celts understand the concept of the son, father, and holy spirit, and the symbol has since stuck as an unmistakably Irish moniker and symbol of good luck. The seashell embossed design reflects Ireland’s seafaring heritage, as well as its status as and island nation lodged in the windy, chill waters of the north Atlantic.
Handmade from the ground up by Belleek craftsmen, each teacup and saucer receives the personal attention of 16 hands who each provide their own special flair of artistry and detail to the set before it ships. Our lovely teacup is 4” wide, 2.5” tall, and holds approximately 6 oz. of tea. The saucer is 5.5” diameter and contains a deep pocket in its center to securely hold the teacup to prevent it from spilling. The cup and saucer should be hand-washed in order to help preserve their delicate features and vibrant, painted designs.
We believe that our Classic Harp Shamrock Teacup & Saucer set not only pay special tribute to Ireland’s historical and cultural past, they also speak to the unprecedented quality that is baked into the heart of each and every item Belleek Pottery ships. It is for these reasons that we are eager to share Belleek products with our customers, and we are confident you will be just as excited to own a fine piece of china such as this from the very first moment you take it out of the beautiful, sturdy packaging.
