The simplicity of the pattern is based on the weave used in wickerwork baskets, once a common feature of both town and country. The design also cleverly uses the stems of the shamrocks to shape such features as the handles and details of the design. It remains an iconic collection, one symbolic of Belleek’s long craft tradition.This Teacup and Saucer comes as a set and with its handpainted Shamrocks would make a signature gift that can be treasured for a lifetime.
