Our handmade Belleek Classic Shamrock Sandwich Tray, like our other exquisite Belleek Shamrock tea-serving pieces, is built around classic features of the company’s oldest and most renowned design. The sandwich tray is a must-have item for presenting bite-sized snacks and hors d ’oeuvres for any family gathering or fun-filled event, and we are proud to offer a piece that the Irish have been using and enjoying for centuries. Our Belleek Classic Shamrock Sandwich Tray includes a lineup of design elements first introduced in the 1880s by Frederick Slater, including a basket weave pattern, and delicate hand-painted shamrocks that perfectly capture the unique, timeless quality of Belleek Pottery and the visionary craftsmen who built each piece from scratch.
The shamrocks which are painted on our sandwich trays are one-of-a-kind, and as most know today, the historical and cultural significance of the shamrock is greatly significant. Believed to have been popularized by St. Patrick after his arrival on the Emerald Isle in 432 AD, the shamrock is a quintessential Irish symbol that will alert any houseguest of your Irish pride or ancestry immediately. It is said that the shamrock was introduced to the Celts of St. Patrick’s time as a way to convey the meaning of the holy trinity: the father, son, and Holy Spirit. Since that time, the shamrock’s use has become prolific in its representation of Irish culture. The basketweave is another somewhat popular motif that is also used on many Irish pieces of giftware or fine china and is believed to grant good luck to the hardy Irish fishermen braving the icy Atlantic waters to feed the Irish coastal villages. The scalloped edges are a traditional ceramic finish that creates another vintage feel with a modern look that will look good served on any table.
Belleek Pottery was founded in 1857 and has held fast to the standards of excellence that made them a favorite among British and Irish royalty. The company still operates from its headquarters in County Fermanagh and customers are allowed to tour the workshop and watch the master craftsmen produce fine china and giftware much the same way they did almost two hundred years ago. The quality of Belleek is well known throughout the United Kingdom and over time, the rest of the world. The company became a favorite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, which helped elevate the company’s recognition and popularity. Although it goes without saying that any piece Belleek Pottery ships is one that is designed to last for a lifetime. From the moment you take our sandwich tray out of the box, you will agree! Not only will this sandwich tray look amazing in your home, but it will also become a treasured heirloom your family will be able to pass down for generations, each one appreciating the unique little piece of Ireland they have been blessed with.
Whether you already own Belleek china or are looking for a piece with which to start yours, the sandwich tray is an ideal choice. The tray itself measures approximately 12.5” long by 6.25” wide.
