Inspired by the wooden trellises alongside Irish cottage doorways, this lovely baby cup features a basketweave design and delicate handpainted shamrocks that bring a charming Irish countryside to mind. This baby mug is part of the luxury pottery collection from Belleek, an Irish company that has been crafting quality fine china giftware for over 155 years. Each piece of pottery is designed by a team of artists, potters, and cutters to be a traditional yet timeless collectible for your home. Baby cups are traditional gifts given for baptisms and christenings that became popular in Europe during the Victorian era. Children were given a special, decorative handled cup, or mug, on their Christening day as a keepsake to mark the event. This beautiful Belleek Shamrock Baby Mug is a great way to continue this tradition for a loved child. Give a timeless and elegant baptism gift that can be treasured forever, or a traditional baby shower gift to celebrate the new arrival!
