The Belleek Claddagh make up bell is a traditional Irish wedding gift.
An old Irish tradition is to give a bell on the occasion of a wedding. A decisive moment is always announced by the ringing of a bell and in Irish culture it is no different. The bell affords good luck and if at any time during the marriage there is discord, the ancient Irish remedy for lovers quarrels is to ring this make up bell, breaking the spirit of discord and renewing the spirit of love.
This fine china Claddagh bell features gold accent trim along with an embossed Celtic knot-work and shamrocks motif on the reverse side. The Irish wedding bell is ideal as a make up bell and it measures 3 3/4" tall x 2 3/8" wide at the base.
The Claddagh make up bell is handmade and hand-painted in Belleek, Ireland and it is gift boxed with history cards for the Claddagh and Celtic knot along with the shamrock and bell legend, complements of The Irish Gift House.
