Glamis Thistle: March’s Featured China Pattern

Featured China Pattern: Glamis Thistle. This beautiful set is bone porcelain china made in England.

In Celtic culture, the thistle represents strength, devotion, durability, and bravery. The thistle seems quite fitting as we celebrate a man who exhibits these qualities as he strived to heal his broken city of Dublin. Refusing to make his fame and fortune in England through his talent in brewing beer, Guinness remained devoted to his city and the people living there. His true strength was to look and see the beauty in these broken people and in his resolve to love and honor them with all he had to offer.
