‘Is deas le searbh súicra (Opposites attract)’ – Rare Spalted-Ash Traditional Irish Wedding Goblet
In 17th century Ireland when a young man fell in love with a young woman he carved a goblet to present to her. He lovingly carved the goblet, with two/three captive rings, all from a single piece of wood.
These two rings symbolised unity and eternity, while the three rings are said to symbolise the engagement ring, the wedding ring and the eternity ring.
At their wedding feast they both drank from the goblet and thereafter kept it in a safe place for, so long as the rings remained unbroken they would love each other for eternity.
Céad Míle Fáilte!

This piece is made from a native Irish Ash tree that lived a natural life at Cnoc na Carraigín, Belclare, Tuam, Co.Galway (my local woodland). After a branch came down in a storm, the maker carefully felled and air-dried the timber. Finished in shellac, lacquer, and natural carnauba wax. Sanded to 600 grit and
polished with respect, care, and love.
