The Meigle Knot was derived from a stone cross slab in Meigle, Scotland. Meigle, once a gathering place for tribal Picts, is the oldest extant village in Scotland. While their language was never recorded, they left their mark on the large stone slabs which remain in evidence today. The Celtic knot was a very common symbol in Celtic art as they believed that the relationships between Man/God/Nature, Birth/Death/Rebirth and Heaven/Earth/Underworld were forever entwined without beginning or end.
This simple yet elegant glass knot was made by Pairpoint Glass, America's oldest glass company. The glass is individually hand pressed from molds that are engraved freehand with hammer and chisel. Individual variations such as bubbles and shear marks may occur caused by the process of hand gathering the glass. Approximately 4.25" in diameter. Ready to hang.
