This stunning lace shamrock, mounted and ready for framing is handmade in Ireland.
The Claddagh design is a traditional Irish symbol representing Love, Loyalty and Friendship. This beautiful piece would make a meaningful gift for family or friend.
The lace is what is known as Carrickmacross Lace, taking it's name from the town in Co. Monaghan that was home to Mrs. Grey-Porter.
In 1820 Mrs. Grey-Porter and her companion, an accomplished needle-woman, developed from the materials available to them an exquisite net lace, which quickly became popular all over Ireland.
The design is appliquéd to a fine net using organdie, fine crochet cotton and thread. A distinctive loop edging, pops and filling stitches complete each piece.
Carrickmacross Lace is hand sewn and has a subtle quality which defies imitation.
