Celtic Cross Lucky four leaf Clover Carved Drinking Horn 33-38cm (13"-15")
This horn has a carved design of a Celtic cross with a lucky woven four leaf clover motif.
Four leaf clovers have traditionally been believed to bring good luck. Before the modern association with Irish celebrations of St. Patrick's Day, four leaf clovers appear in ancient Celtic and Pagan mythology and were supposedly carried by Druids as a talisman to ward off bad luck and evil spirits. Later during the Middle Ages it was believed that four leaf clovers assisted the possessor to see beings of the fairy realm and the recognition of witches and potential evil spirits.
The first literary reference to suggest the good fortune of the clover was made in 1620 by Sir John Melton who wrote. “That if any man walking in the fields, find any foure-leaved grasse, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”
Measured along the outside of the horn, the lengths range from 33 - 38 cm.
The horn shown is an example, of the style of horn. Due to both the natural variations in horns and the handmade quality, each horn is unique in its curvature and colour tone and maybe a mixture of yellow, brown, white, cream, black and clear in colour.
We recommend coating your horn in beeswax to prolong the use of your horn.
