Vintage Irish St. Patrick's Day Figurines and Collectibles

by lakeerieartists

Vintage collectibles for St. Patrick's Day range from porcelain ceramic figurines to Irish coffee mugs trimmed with gold.

If you love to collect vintage seasonal and holiday decorations, then do not leave out one of the most iconic holidays of the year, St. Patrick's Day. Although St. Patrick's Day originated as a religious, ethnic one day holiday, it has become one of the most popular and celebrated holidays in the United States, and across the world.

Because of that, there are some very interesting vintage collectibles from very lovely Lefton Irish figurines to beautiful Irish Bone China to some of the most kitsch home decor and jewelry to display during the St. Patrick's holiday (or just for fun).

Lefton Irish St. Patrick's Day Figurines

The Lefton Company, owned by George Zoltan Lefton made many fine china and porcelain items including beautiful figurines.  Some of those include Irish, leprechaun, and St. Patrick's Day themed figurines that are highly collectible, beautiful, cute, and quaint in turn.  For anyone who loves to collect vintage figurines, salt and pepper shakers, or other home decor and tableware items, the Lefton collection is affordable, and delightful, fun to collect and makes the perfect gift or decor for St. Patrick's Day.

Below you can see just a few examples of Lefton figurines: Irish girls and Irish leprechauns cavorting about.  Click through the links for more items by Lefton.

Vintage St. Patrick's Day Mugs and Cups

On St. Patrick's Day, drinking is one of the events of the day, whether you are sipping Irish coffee, or drinking Irish whiskey or beer in the pub with your friends after viewing the St. Patrick's Day parade in your hometown.  The Irish have a rich cultural history that includes many fine potables that we drink all day long, and for St. Patrick's Day it makes a lot of sense to do your drinking out of a vintage St. Patrick's Day mug, cup, or beer glass.  Here are just a few vintage cups for you to peruse, and the luck of the Irish to you when you find the right one for this year.

When dressing in your Irish best for St. Patrick's Day, are you sporting a beautiful Irish shamrock brooch?  There are many vintage Irish or St. Patrick's Day brooches to choose from including inexpensive St. Patrick's Day regalia and more expensive fine jewelry from Ireland or Irish artisans elsewhere.  Many brooches have themes specific to Irish culture, Ireland, or St. Patrick's Day to wear on that special day or throughout the year.  To see more details, just click the links above.

Vintage St. Patrick's Day Salt and Pepper Shakers

I have to admit that I have a personal spot in my heart for vintage salt and pepper shakers.  They are so affordable and fun to collect.  I especially like the vintage salt and pepper shakers that are figurines, either animals or people, and therefore, you can see why I recommend that you take a look at the beautiful, whimsical St. Patrick's Day salt and pepper shakers available on Ebay.

As you browse through the pairs of salt and pepper shakers, you can see how they would look wonderful as displays in your china cabinet or even on your table, a pair for each diner at the dinner table for St. Patrick's Day.  Most of them are just plain fun, fanciful looks at Irish culture, St. Patrick's Day, leprechauns, and even a few pots of gold.  And who can deny the possibility of luck when using them to throw a little salt over your shoulder on St. Patrick's Day.
