A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann of Irish mythology. The Leprechauns spend all their time busily making shoes, and store away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured by a human, the Leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their release. Popular depiction shows the Leprechaun as being no taller than a small child, with a beard and hat, although they may originally have been perceived as the tallest of the mound-dwellers (the Tuatha Dé Danann).

Prince August has a wide selection of metal miniatures of these wee folk as they go about their business. These are hand painted or antique finished by Irish artists in Cork. They are painted in acrylic paint and the style may vary so please note that the photos are guides to what they look like, not exactly what colours they are painted. Our artists use their own creativity to make each one unique.

Please check the size as they are different sizes and since they are a magical being, normal scale measurements are inapplicable.

All these products are manufactured in a Gaeltacht or Irish speaking district in Ireland by Irish workers.
