This ceramic spoon rest offers a large flat surface that can be used with a wide range of kitchen utensils from the spatula to the ladle. It features an illustration of dark green shamrocks; the unofficial emblem of Ireland. The border is exquisitely designed with celtic swirls and twists and painted in light green. This is a beautiful and elegant reminder of Ireland. This spoon rest has a practical function in the kitchen but is lovely enough it can easily be used just as display.
