Vintage Belleek Ireland fine Porcelain Floral Vase 1984 - 1993
Beautiful creamy white floral vase by Belleek, Ireland's oldest working fine china pottery! It measures 6 7/8 inches tall & 3 1/4 inches wide.
The mark on the bottom indicates that it was created between 1984 & 1993. In April 1980, this seventh mark was introduced to commemorate the centenary of the Gold medal won at the Melbourne Exhibition of 1880. The color was changed to gold and the round disk with "deanta in eireann" was omitted. Then, sometime around 1984, the gold color on the mark was substituted w/ a browner toned gold color to improve the clarity of the back stamp.
This is an exquisite example of fine Irish craftmanship. The vase is in pristine, perfect condition and would make a memorable gift!
