King Arthur Design
King Arthur was a legendary clan leader thought to have existed during the Dark Ages in southern Britain. Tales of King Arthur tell of him reuniting Britain against the Saxon invaders.
His loyal followers became the Knights of the Round Table and were appointed to defend their country. Arthur's Round Table gave all his Knights equal status during counsel. As the Dark Ages merged with the growth of Christianity in Britain, Arthur and his Knights embarked on a quest to search for the Holy Grail, the legendary Chalice which Christ drank from at the Last Supper.
The legendary Camelot was King Arthur's and Queen Guinevere's Castle.
Our King Arthur design is based on a shield and decorated with glass facets and surrounded by intricate Celtic knots and swirls. This piece of glassware makes a fabulous gift for that special person interested in the Arthurian legends.
