This 3.9" Belleek rose bud basket expresses the beauty that rose out of a tragic time in Ireland. During the famine, John Caldwell Bloomfield inherited his family's estate in the tiny town of Belleek nestled in County Fermanagh. He was determined to bring prosperity to the devastated community and discovered that local resources provided everything necessary for high quality porcelain. When William Henshall came to the Belleek factory in 1865, he brought imagination and skills to create the coveted Belleek rose bud heart basket that is sought by porcelain collectors today. The basket designs are heralded as the most difficult porcelain pieces to make.

The extreme high quality of the porcelain allows for it's thin, yet strong capacity and why Belleek pieces reach decorative heights. This Belleek basket features rose buds of various colors, green leaves, and a beautiful purple butterfly atop the amazing porcelain basket weaving. Belleek artisans continue to use the handmade techniques taught by William Henshall. All elements of this Belleek rose bud basket are hand painted and handmade. Belleek baskets are highly prized and gifting this to any Irish-hearted woman is a magnificent display of love.
