The iconic Belleek Harp Collection was designed by artist Frederick Slater in the 1880s, to portray the essence of Ireland. He chose to incorporate three designs to honor the Emerald Isle. Shells were chosen to remind us that Ireland was an island, set in the sea. The harp, a symbol of Ireland, was chosen to portray its people and their culture. The Shamrocks represent its patron saint, Patrick. The pieces in this collection are elegant and lovely. They show off fine, embossed details and the hand painted green shamrocks that Belleek is known for. They make excellent additions to any Belleek collection and are perfect to hand down through generations as they are timeless in design.
Belleek is handcrafted in Ireland of fine Parian China. Item comes boxed.
