A teapot is the center of attention at any Irish gathering before dark, and whether you’re entertaining house guests or simply having a cuppa to your self, there’s no classier way to prepare one of Ireland’s most treasured drinks than with Belleek’s Harp Shamrock teapot.
The design, which features harp, seashell, and shamrock detailing, was created in the 1880s by Frederick Slater and has become one of Belleek’s staples.
Each element was selected to represent the cultural heritage of the country – the harp for Ireland’s tradition of poetry and song, the seashell to represent the island nation connected eternally to the sea, and the shamrock to reflect its patron saint, St. Patrick.
Founded in 1849, Belleek is the oldest fine china pottery in Ireland and has been producing distinguished Parian porcelain since 1863. Located in County Fermanagh, Belleek was a favorite of Irish and British nobility, including Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Teapot contains 25 oz. Hand wash only.
