Belleek House Blessing Ornament is decorated with shamrocks and the words “Bless this House” in green lettering.Shaped like an inviting front door with a domed leaded-glass window, this ornament makes an appropriate gift for any home at any time of year. Written above the domed light are the words, Bless this house. A green cord attached to the top allows the ornament to be hung on a front door, porch wall, or Christmas tree. Made in Ireland of fine parian china, the glazed white ornament measures 4 by 2-1/4 inches, and is decorated with hand-painted green shamrocks.
Parian china was invented in Great Britain in the 1840s for sculpting classical figurines. Because of the china’s marble-like translucence, the name derived from the Greek island of Paros, famous for its prized white marble. Belleek parian ware exhibits exceptional craftsmanship and is esteemed among collectors worldwide. –Ann Bieri
