The St. Patrick Cross from Belleek combines a traditional Celtic cross with embossed detailing that references ancient Irish brooches, of the kind St. Patrick would have worn.
The shamrock detailing is hand painted and the clover is one of Ireland’s best-known images and has long been connected to St. Patrick.
Representing good fortune and the green of Ireland’s natural landscape, they have been closely associated with the country for hundred of years.
St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the pre-Christian Celts about the holy trinity when converting them to Catholicism – three leaves connected to a single stem.
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.
Green hanging cord included. Measures approximately 3.5in wide x 4.75in high.
