Our Lamppost Motif
The inspiration for our lamppost base motif is loosely based on the ‘Claddagh Ring’.
Towards the end of the 20th century there was an explosion of interest in the ‘Claddagh Ring’, both as jewellery piece and a reflection to a historical past.
The ‘Claddagh Ring’ symbolism is now a part of many objects from jewellery, Irish literature, traditional knitwear to our very own range of cast iron garden lighting.
The interlace design & Celtic imagery has led to worldwide expansion in its popularity. The ‘Claddagh Ring’ represents love, loyalty, and friendship. Quite often the ‘Claddagh Ring’ is used as a sign of friendship and affection between lovers when worn on the ring finger. These rings are commonly used as engagement and wedding rings.
There is also a distinct symbolism in the design linking back to our past.
