From Belleek, Ireland, here is a delicate yellow-trimmed Sugar and Creamer in the pattern known as Toy Shell. The translucent, creamy white porcelain has a textured design of a curled nautilus shell. The sugar bowl is circled with four curling shells and a scalloped rim. The matching creamer, which fits neatly inside the sugar, has the shell design on each side. The handle is textured to resemble seaweed which continues in relief around the neck of the little pitcher and also circles the foot. The seaweed handle, neck, and foot are finished in a very pale yellow, and the interior of each piece is done in a pale yellow lustre.

The dainty creamer is 3-1/2 inches tall and 2-5/8 inches in diameter at its widest. It is 3-inches across the handle and spout and stands on a 1-1/2 inch diameter foot. The matching open sugar is 2-1/2 inches tall by 3-inches in diameter across the rim and 3-1/2 inches at its widest. It has a 2-3/8 inch diameter foot.

Both pieces are stamped with Belleek's 4th mark, which was the first green mark. It is the traditional Belleek mark of a Wolfhound, Harp, and a Round Tower in the background above a banner with the word "Belleek.” A ribbon banner below bears the words “Co Fermanagh Ireland.” A circle with a Celtic knot is added below with the Gaelic words "deanta in éireann" meaning “Made in Ireland."

This mark was used by Belleek from 1946 to 1955.

There is a small 1/8-inch place along the rim of the sugar where the glaze was missed. This does not affect the look, but it doesn't have the smoothness of the glaze in that spot. There are no other condition issues. The yellow lustre on the interiors is bright and shiny.
