Our St. Patrick Cross ornament from Belleek Pottery combines a traditional Celtic cross with embossed detailing that references ancient Irish brooches, of the very same kind St. Patrick would have worn. The shamrock detailing is hand-painted and the clover is one of Ireland’s most iconic and best-known images and has long been connected to St. Patrick. Our Belleek Classic Saint Patrick’s Cross Ornament stands approximately 3.5” wide and 4.75” tall and includes a green hanging cord making it easy to choose a spot in your home for this beautiful piece. The soft natural color with light green accents makes this piece easy to place in any room in your house, as it will look good virtually anywhere you choose to keep it. Your guests will be so impressed with the hand-embossed ancient Irish symbols lined up and down the piece, and they will be equally impressed that the item is handmade in its entirety, and is even painted by hand. If you look closely, you’ll see the individual artist’s initials who helped create your cross, giving this item a special connection between yourself and the hands that made it.
Representing good fortune and the green of Ireland’s natural landscape, they have been closely associated with the country for hundreds 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. Since then, the shamrock has become one of the country’s most instantly recognizable symbols and is cherished as an enduring icon of the Irish spirit.
Belleek Pottery was founded in 1849 and quickly became a favorite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as well as other members of Irish and British nobility. Known for their exquisite designs and Parian porcelain products, Belleek Pottery is Ireland’s oldest fine china pottery and has long stood as its most treasured. In addition to its popularity among the country’s elite, the popularity of Belleek Pottery’s products spread quickly around the world, and it wasn’t long before the company was exporting items internationally. Since its establishment, the company has kept its headquarters in the village of Belleek in County Fermanagh, where it is situated along the banks of the River Erne. This spot was chosen for easy access to clay harvested along the river’s edge. The artisans employed there have remained consistent in their methods of manufacture and design for generations. Their proud traditions are carried on to this day and over a dozen artisans in the company’s workshop add their own special touch to every piece created, including our St. Patrick’s Cross Ornaments. No two crosses are alike so when you purchase your Belleek Classic Saint Patrick’s Cross Ornament you are bringing into your home a very special, unique item made in Ireland that bears a significant amount of the country’s history and culture.
