HISTORIQUE: Irish Belleek (The Enchanted Porcelain of Ireland) – Belleek Pottery was founded in 1858 after John Caldwell Bloomfield, an amateur mineralogist with a particular interest in ceramics, inherited his father's estate. The grounds of the estate were rich in minerals. The porcelain factory was opened in the village of Belleek as a way to provide a sustainable living for the Irish farmers who had been subject to the potato famine. Bloomfield went into partnership a London architect and a Dublin merchant.

The factory was able to create a very fine thin porcelain heralded as the finest, thinnest ever made. Today, collectors around the world, seek out pieces of this legendary pottery.
