St. Brigid, together with St. Patrick, is the patron saint of Ireland. St. Brigid converted her father to the Christian faith while forming a cross out of rushes, as this decorative porcelain replica is designed to imitate. Upon seeing the cross, her father repented and was converted to the faith of his daughter. St. Brigid's cross has been famous ever since, often being displayed in homes on the eve of her feast day. This lovely porcelain St. Brigid's cross from Belleek is a great way to keep this traditional Irish cross as a home decoration. Belleek has been handcrafting high quality fine china for over 155 years, designing beautiful porcelain giftware that has become famous the world over.
