This beautiful Shamrock Cribbage Set is made by the Robert Emmet Company of a durable resin that will last for years and years of game play. The board is decorated with a scrimshaw style design, modeled after carvings in ivory or bone that were once popular among Atlantic merchants and whalers.
The top of the board contains a Shamrock medallion that covers a secret compartment to hold the cribbage pegs. The lid is affixed with a secure magnet. The shamrock has long been associated with Ireland and Irish history. It is thought that St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the pre-Christian Irish about the Holy Trinity in the 5th century. Since then, it has been a symbol of Irish culture.
