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 home 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.
