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 Aras Short Stories pattern is derived from the Irish word for home and the design depicts a vertical cut representing the striking architecture of the turrets seen in Ireland's many beautiful castles. An entertaining essential, the Aras Ice Bucket and Scoop is decorative and functional, presented in classic Waterford packaging.
