Being a tough plant, the thistle grows everywhere other plants usually dont. It stands for surviving where others won't and often this is surviving harsh conditions.
Pain, protection and pride pretty much sum up the different representations of the thistle.
The Scottish Thistle is the oldest recorded 'National Flower' and is probably one of the most well-known, and easily recognized symbols of Scotland, which shares the Celtic heritage with Irish.
This beautiful Footed Thistle Vase was inspired by the wild thistles that grow all over Scotland and Ireland.
A perfect vase for your favorite flowers.
Handmade in Waterford, ireland.
