Native Collection - The Mouse
Description: The Field Mouse (An Luch Féir)
Inspired by our natural landscape, the Native Collection is tableware that has been lovingly hand-manufactured using home-grown, hardwood flaming beech. Adorned with original artwork by our sister Deirdre, it combines traditions both old and new to portray the beauty of Ireland.
The wood mouse, also known as the long tailed field mouse, is one of Ireland’s prettiest small mammals. Its Irish name ‘Luch féir’ means ‘grass’ or ‘field’ mouse It can be distinguished from other small rodents by its long tail and large eyes and ears.
As the name would suggest it is a woodland species, living in coniferous, deciduous and mixed forests. However, its highly adaptable nature leads to habitation of most areas except water logged land.
In Celtic mythology the mouse represents secrets and shyness, and the ability to hide in times of danger.
Every MOUSE board has an attractive, unique, natural grain.
