Belleek Classic Oval Covered Basket 29cm
The creation of each Belleek Basket tells us a story about the amazing art of Belleek basket making. Basket and flower making was introduced to Belleek by William Henshall who came to work for Belleek Pottery in the late 1860s. Over the next forty years, he developed the craft and trained the local craftsmen in the necessary skills. These in turn passed their skills down through the following generations to the present day.
This exquisite Oval Covered Basket is beautifully designed and handcrafted in Ireland. The detailed piece illustrates the unique Belleek basket weaving techniques and is embellished with hand painted flowers and leaves
