A fine piece of Irish Belleek, this is somewhat awkwardly catalogs by the pottery as the "Belleek Jardiniere Unfooted". It is a thinly-potted body in a swirling shell form, decorated with extremely fine, hand applied leaves, stems and flowers, all in Belleek's tradmark cream-color porcelain.
Size: 4.125" tall, 5" in diameter at the mouth.
Condition: minute kiln "kiss" (flat spot in the glaze where the piece touched something else during firing) on the rim. One leaf (just to the right of the large flower) is missing a crescent-shaped piece. This applied decoration is so fine on these piece that they're all but impossible to find without damage.
Mark: third green mark, dating the piece to between 1965 and 1980.
