An ideal gift to show someone in your life your appreciation, our beautiful Irish Blessing Gift Box is an exquisite piece from Belleek Pottery’s renowned giftware collection. Whether you order this as a wedding present, birthday gift, anniversary gift, or graduation present, this incredibly detailed gift box will surely bring a bit of Irish joy to the recipient’s eye.
Crafted from Belleek Pottery’s finest Irish porcelain sourced directly from the banks of the River Erne, our Irish Blessing Gift Box features 24 karat gold accents on the lid lettering and a trinity knot design on the base. The box itself is 3” in diameter and stands at 1.5” tall and is dripping with beautiful Irish imagery. What is most gripping about this piece though is the verbiage delicately painted across the lid. The words appear in a verdant green and include 24-karat gold letters at the beginning of each line. Nestled beneath the inscription is a familiar Irish setting: A man walking his dog along a quaint country road, rock walls and cottages set in the background. Lining the main body of our Irish Blessing Gift Box is the familiar Trinity Knot design, which has been used by the Celts extending far into ancient times. Pre-Christian Celts used the Trinity Knot as a symbol of the interconnectedness of life, the earth, and the universe, and it was an important religious symbol for generations. After the arrival of St. Patrick in 431 AD, the Trinity Knot became a popular symbol of the Christian holy trinity, symbolizing the three-in-one nature of the father, son, and holy spirit. The Trinity Knot can be found throughout Ireland and regularly appears as an important symbol of national identity. The knots appearing on our gift box are painted in 24-karat gold, adding the perfect finishing touch to this wonderful piece that will make a perfect addition to any dresser, shelf, or special place in your home.
Our Irish Blessing Gift Box is entirely hand-painted and includes one of Ireland’s oldest and most well-known blessings:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the rain fall soft upon your fields
and the sun shine warm on your face
until we meet again.
