Ireland is a country of words. Spoken, written or sung, the Irish are famously verbose and social people known for their warmth, hospitality and generosity. It is the Irish spirit of togetherness, sharing and interaction that inspires our Waterford Short Stories Collection. The Cluin Short Stories pattern is derived from the Irish word for read and features a grid-like design that pays tribute to the towering oak book shelves of Dublin's carefully preserved 18th century Marsh's Library, built three-hundred years ago. An entertaining essential, the Cluin Ice Bucket and Scoop is decorative and functional, presented in classic Waterford packaging.
