This 4" Belleek rose bud heart basket demonstrates why Belleek is sought by porcelain collectors. The basket designs are heralded as the most difficult porcelain pieces to make. The extreme high quality of the porcelain found in the tiny town of Belleek in County Fermanagh, makes creations such as a Belleek basket decorated with flowers, leaves, and butterflies possible. The fine porcelain is thin, yet strong which is why Belleek pieces reach decorative heights. Belleek's basket weaving techniques are unique and started when William Henshall arrived in Belleek to offer his skills and inspirations in 1865.

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 2:H x 4"W x 2"D piece are hand painted and handmade. Belleek pottery came to coveted heights in 1871 when the awards came pouring in and Queen Victoria ordered pieces for her collection. Belleek baskets are highly prized and gifting this to any Irish-hearted woman is a magnificent display of love.
