Inspired by the Irish Arts and Crafts movement of the 19th century and based on a pattern by Alice Jacob, these Irish Crafts mugs are a great nod to history and Ireland’s artistic heritage.
The embossed detailing features images of shamrock sprigs and graphic Celtic knots in a uniquely Irish style.
Born in New Zealand in 1862, Jacob studied at the Metropolitan Art College in Dublin and was a leading figure in the crafts movement that sought to return to simpler artistic styles that focused on natural materials, basic forms, and traditional construction techniques.
The style was massively at odds with Victorian tastes at the time, yet influenced Irish, British, and American home and apparel design for decades.
With these beautiful cream-colored mugs that seem almost as if they were pulled pre-formed directly from the earth, you can carry a bit of that heritage with you whenever you’re having a cuppa.
Importantly, these mugs are dishwasher safe, something of which Jacob would certainly have approved.
Belleek was founded in 1849 and quickly became a favorite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Known for their exquisite designs and Parian porcelain, Belleek is Ireland’s oldest fine china pottery.
Gently beveled rims helps prevent drips and spills
