Belleek Since 1857, Belleek has become synonymous with the finest, most beautiful china in the world, and boasts its Irish heritage with pride. Belleek is a small village in County Fermanagh and was devastated by the Great Famine in the mid-1800s, much like the rest of Ireland. John Caldwell Bloomfield began searching for a way to help the remaining local population when he inherited his father’s estate in 1849 and discovered that the geological area around the village was rich in clay, shale, flint, and other minerals needed to create high-quality pottery. The power of the nearby River Erne was harnessed to grind the raw materials into liquid so that they could be transformed into pottery--and the company was born in 1857, about a decade after the worst year of the Famine. Belleek’s earliest products were practical items for the kitchen and homes like tableware, mortars and pestles, and floor tiles. However, they quickly began exploring the more artistic side of their craft, and Belleek quickly gained a reputation for beautiful, high-quality products as they began exporting their distinctly Irish crafts to the US, Canada, and Australia while serving a booming market at home in Ireland and the UK. Queen Victoria herself was an early customer of the company. Today, Belleek features a range of beautiful products, from teapots and tea sets, jewelry boxes, picture frames, flower vases, Christmas ornaments, and elegant dishes. This sophisticated bread plate is an example of the careful craftsmanship that goes into every piece Belleek manufactures, Irish pottery that stands as a shining light on a world-class scale. Shamrocks are one of those symbols that evoke the thought of Ireland. The name shamrock comes from the Irish word seamróg, and translates to “young clover” or “summer plant.” These young green sprigs have deep links to the history of Ireland. The plant was considered sacred to the Irish Druids due to its cluster of three heart-shaped leaves. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is said to have used the shamrock as a metaphor for the Christian holy trinity. The shamrock has been used as an Irish national symbol since the 18th century, much like the thistle is used in Scotland and the rose for England. Today, it is featured on many buildings as a decorative motif, lampposts, postcards, and postage stamps. The shamrock is also featured prominently in celebrations--it is a tradition for the Irish Taoiseach to present a Waterford crystal bowl of shamrocks to the President of the United States in the White House on St. Patrick’s Day. The soldiers of the Royal Irish Regiment of the British Army not only use the shamrock as their emblem but they also traditionally wear a sprig of shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day.
