Mullingar Pewter Shamrock Irish Pocket Watch
A vintage style pocket watch with trinity shamrock design. This pocket watch features a beautiful shamrock design on it's back which has three small trinity knots, one in each of the leaves of the shamrock clover. Both the shamrock and the trinity knot are famous symbols associated with Irish history and heritage.
The trinity knot can be seen in famous ancient manuscripts like the Book of Kells. In modern times it has become associated by Christians with the Holy Trinity- The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. The Shamrock is associated with Ireland's patron saint, St. Patrick. Legend says that St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach Irish people the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
The pocket watch measures 2 inches in diameter and the chain is 14 inches long.
