Up for auction is this Antique Early First Period BELLEEK covered dish with a green rose vine design. It measures approximately 6.5" from the top of cover to bottom of dish, 11" long, and is 8" wide. The bottom is marked with a brown crown with a sword through it. "BELLEEK" is written under the crown. I've never seen a piece with this mark, but I am not an expert. I am told that it is American Belleek, from somew in the 1800's, and is collected by many. It was made by workmen who came from Ireland to the US to find work. This is from a dinnerware line, of which t are not many pieces in existence. This piece is in great condition, t are no chips. The bow handle on the cover has light brown spots, I gather from age, but this does not stand out and is not noticable in the photograph. T is beautiful detail on the handles and bottom of dish. The cover and top of dish are scalloped. Lovely green rose vine design goes all the way around the dish and cover. The green looks faded in spots, but this is MINOR. This piece is very old!!
Thanks for looking!! Comes from a smoke free home.
