The Belleek basket weave design is one of the company’s oldest and most renowned porcelain details. First developed in the 1880s by Irish designer-craftsman Frederick Slater, the basketweave and shamrock mashup is based on historic wickerwork designs used by the Irish for hundreds of years and is said to bring good fortune and a bountiful fish harvest to those who possess it. Here, it is brought into the elegance of the modern age in refined china, making it a great addition or starting point for your Irish-themed fine china collection. Of course, the iconic shamrock designs represent one of the most iconic of Irish cultural symbols, and the delicate curves and light green leaves of these hand-painted shamrocks are immediately noticeable on the platter. It is believed that St. Patrick was the catalyst for popularizing the shamrock after his arrival to Ireland in 432 AD. He used the little plant to help the Celts understand the notion of the Christian holy trinity: the father, son, and Holy Spirit. Today, the shamrock is used to represent Ireland across the globe, and our Belleek Classic Shamrock Large Oval Platter is no exception. These shamrocks are hand-painted shamrock detailing is done by Belleek’s master artisans and each shamrock is unique to every piece shipped by the company, a tradition they have held fast to since their founding in 1857.
