An early Irish Belleek lizard and mushroom vase with luster and gold highlights dating between 1863 and 1890. The vase is in great condition with no chips or cracks. There is minor rubbing to the gold accents and some of the usual specks and inclusions from the old wood fired kilns, see close-up photos. Marked as shown with the first Belleek black mark which is somewhat smudged but still easily recognizable.
Height approx. 8 3/4" and 4" wide at the base.
