If you’re looking for the perfect gift to recognize all the work that dear old Dad does, Belleek’s classic “Dad” Mug is the perfect way to honor Dad. It’s nice enough for special occasions, but he’ll want to use it every day. Crafted by Belleek artisans in Ireland, this mug has a delicate design that makes it a truly special piece. The body of the mug features an embossed basket weave pattern that calls to mind the wickerwork baskets popular in the 19th century. The texture of the simple white weave pattern contrasts sharply with the “Dad” inscription across the front, hand-painted in vibrant green. The inscription matches the three hand-painted shamrocks below it. As symbols of good fortune, shamrocks are the perfect detail that to bring your Dad good luck, healing, and protection as he sips his beverage of choice. Belleek Since 1857, Belleek has become synonymous with the finest, most beautiful china in the world, and is a hallmark of Irish heritage. The village of Belleek is located in County Fermanagh, and was devastated in the Great Famine during the mid 1800s. John Caldwell Bloomfield discovered the geological area around the village was rich in clay, shale, flint, and other minerals needed to create high-quality pottery. The power of the nearby River Erne was harnessed to grind the raw materials into liquid so that they could be transformed into pottery--and Belleek the company was born in 1857. Bloomfield had found a way to help save the village. Belleek’s earliest products were practical items for the kitchen and home--tableware, mortars and pestles, floor tiles, and the like. However, they quickly began exploring the more artistic side of their craft, and the Belleek artisans quickly gained a reputation for beautiful, high-quality products. Queen Victoria herself was an early customer of Belleek’s new artistic style. Today, Belleek features a range of exquisite products, from teapots and tea sets, jewelry boxes, picture frames, flower vases, Christmas ornaments, and elegant dishes. This sweet mug is a great example of the careful craftsmanship that goes into every piece Belleek manufactures--Irish pottery that stands as a shining light on a world class scale. Shamrocks Shamrocks are one of those symbols that evoke the thought of Ireland. The name shamrock comes from the Irish word seamróg, and translates to “young clover” or “summer plant.” These young green sprigs have deep links to the history of Ireland. The plant was considered sacred to the Irish Druids due to its cluster of three heart-shaped leaves. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is said to have used the shamrock as a metaphor for the Christian holy trinity. The shamrock has been used as an Irish national symbol since the 18th century, much like the thistle is used in Scotland and the rose for England. Today, it is featured on many buildings as a decorative motif, lampposts, postcards, and postage stamps. The shamrock is also featured prominently in celebrations--it is a tradition for the Irish Taoiseach to present a Waterford crystal bowl of shamrocks to the President of the United States in the White House on St. Patrick’s day. The soldiers of the Royal Irish Regiment of the British Army not only use the shamrock as their emblem, but they also traditionally wear a sprig of shamrock on St. Patrick’s day.
