If you are looking for a stunning collectable, look no further. The creation of each Belleek Basket tells us a story about the amazing art of Belleek basket making. Basket and flower making was introduced to Belleek by William Henshall who came to work for Belleek Pottery in the late 1860s. Over the next forty years he developed the craft and trained the local craftsmen in the necessary skills. These in turn passed their skills down through the following generations to the present day. This hand made piece is one of 125 that were made with 160th Anniversary Stamp.
