This stunning Cashel clock from the internationally-renowned Belleek pottery company is a work of art that will bring an undeniable element of tradition and elegance to any room. A product of the designer’s Trellis Shamrock Collection, it’s also perfect for tying together any decor aesthetic with a few of its other gorgeous pieces!
This delightful piece takes its name from the world-famous Rock of Cashel, which its overall shape was designed to closely imitate. Located in the town of Cashel in Co. Tipperary, Ireland, the Rock of Cashel is famous for having been the seat of the kings of Ireland’s Munster region for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion of the country. In 1101, the then-king, Muirchertach Ua Briain, donated the Rock to the Catholic Church, who embellished further on its natural beauty. Today, the Rock of Cashel is known all over the globe for having one of the most extensive collections of true Celtic art to be found anywhere, as well as a breathtaking array of authentic medieval architecture. Through few traces of the earliest Rock of Cashel buildings survive, most structures -- such as the one on which this clock is based -- were erected around the 12th or 13th century; in short, they’re still not young by any means!
Elegantly decorating the smooth, cream-colored surface of this lovely clock is a hand-painted trellis shamrock motif, the look of which Belleek has become well-known for down through the years. And there’s good reason for that, too: the delicate strokes and bright green paint used to administer these tiny, three-leaved plants is nothing short of beautiful! For hundreds of years, the shamrock has been considered one of the most important symbols of the Irish nation and people both at home and abroad. Some legends even say that St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, used a shamrock sprig in his sermons to teach the then-pagan population of Ireland about Christianity: using the three leaves of the shamrock, he explained that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit were all aspects of the same God. (Interestingly, it’s also said that the Rock of Cashel was the site on which St. Patrick converted the then-king of Munster to the Church, prompting him to give the site over to the monks, as mentioned above. This gorgeous clock really is a history lesson in and of itself!)
This clock is made entirely by hand, as is the case with many Belleek Pottery products. Based in the heart of Co. Fermanagh, Ireland, Belleek has been recognized on a global scale for the achievements it has made in its 160 years of craftsmanship, producing over 100,000 pieces of artisanal pottery on an annual basis. And, what’s more, Belleek truly does take “hand-made” to a whole new level: each piece produced by its workshop is guaranteed to have passed through no less than 16 pairs of expert Irish hands!
