Royal Tara china is famous for its delicate scattering of tiny shamrocks.
Belleek china is a heavy china that is full of whimsy. Isn't this a sweet bowl for spring?
I love this vase with the Irish Claddagh image. The design originated in the fishing village of Claddagh in the 1600's. The hands clasping a heart topped by a crown represent love (heart) friendship (hands clasping) and loyalty (crown). Rings are often presented with this design with the expression "With my hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my love."
For "Quiet Man" fans, here is a china ornament based on the White ~o~Mornin' cottage located in Cong, County Mayo.
With all this china shall we have an Irish tea party in the beautiful green countryside?
We could set a table of antique linen and top it with painted tin cans holding clover and baby tears.
Or maybe lay out a quaint cloth of eyelet topped by green glasses filled with flowers.
Let's tie up the napkins with a long blade of green grass.
Perhaps we could add a bit of pink to our table as it looks so lovely with the green.
Shall we have a spot of Barry's tea or perhaps an Irish coffee?
Let's serve it with a few clover cookies.
