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 Cluin Short Stories pattern is derived from the Irish word for read and features a grid-like design that pays tribute to the towering oak book shelves of Dublin's carefully preserved 18th century Marsh's Library, built three-hundred years ago. This Cluin Double Old Fashioned 12 OZ is the ideal glass for any vintage cocktail. Perfect for gifting, the set of two is presented in classic Waterford packaging.
