Waterford Crystal Aran Isles Bowl Romance of Ireland Collection

Waterford Crystal Aran Isles Bowl Romance of Ireland Collection
This is a glorious piece and its in very good condition with no chips or cracks!  Comes with original box, papers, sticker and outer sleeve. This particular piece has a story to it. The story is that the wives of the fisherman would knit sweaters for their husbands to wear when they went out to sea. Each wife made their sweaters with a different design. If their husbands were killed at sea, then the authorities would be able to identify the man by the design of the sweater. This bowl was created by one of the designs. The piece is properly acid signed on the edge of the base and signed by artist!  This Great Collectable has been discontinued and is no longer available in stores.  The piece stands 5 1/2 inches in height and the diameter on top is 9 7/8 inches. A lovely piece to add to any table setting or to give as a fine gift!
