Blarney Castle situated in Blarney Village, County Cork, Ireland is the home of the most famous "Blarney stone" or "Stone of Eloquence as its called". The Blarney castle vase design represents the parapets on the top of the castle which is the area where the stone is embedded into the castle walls.
The Stone of Eloquence
For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.
Once upon a time, visitors had to be held by the ankles and lowered head first over the battlements. Today, we are rather more cautious of the safety of our visitors. The Stone itself is still set in the wall below the battlements. To kiss it, one has to lean backwards (holding on to an iron railing) from the parapet walk. The prize is a real one as once kissed the stone bestows the gift of eloquence.
The Blarney Castle Vase comes in two sizes 9" & 7" Versions
