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 Olann Short Stories pattern is derived from the Irish word for wool and the design is inspired by the famous Aran wool knit sweater and the Aran stitch, which is a ÔDiamond StitchÕ reminiscent of the small fields on the island. An entertaining essential, the Olann Ice Bucket and Scoop is decorative and functional, presented in classic Waterford packaging.
