Here's the creamer and sugar in that Neptune pattern knockoff from Galluba & Hoffman in Germany. The seller thinks it's Belleek and I'm too lazy to correct them. :) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Anti...
That's the small size version. The large size version is about 12" lengthwise.
The Neptune-like cup you mentioned is a knockoff of Belleek's Neptune pattern made by Galluba & Hoffman Porcelain Co. of Ilmenau Thuringia Germany. I see the creamer and sugar in this pattern more ...
Nothing in green mark or later Belleek, and especially in this once ubiquitous "Cob Lustre" finish (ivory body with yellow detail glaze), is ever rare. You could probably fill the state of Rhode Isla...
In the change to a parian pad with the Belleek mark versus the traditional parian strips with impressed numbers and letters, I've come across (now vintage) examples of baskets with the 6th and later m...
As for "blobby" I believe that has to do with Belleek cutting corners. I think there's a process whereby when some parts come out of the mold the detailing needs to be defined more with a tool (such ...
I believe from the overall shape this is the smaller size of the Oval Covered Basket? It's in the 1983 price list as: 0569-11 C Oval Basket Covd SS Ptd 15 $2250.00 The first number is the i...
I'm not sure what this cost by 1985-89 when it was made, but I have the 1983 price list and it's listed (exactly) as: 0587-11 C Rathmore Oval Basket Ptd 17 $5500.00 The first number is the item...
I was told by a renowned Belleek dealer in the late-1980s (Aaron Levine, whose daughter Nanci continues his trade) that Mask was first issued in the third mark period (in the 1920s). Recently I found...
In the first image, fourth shelf down, love the Echinus tea pot for one. I saw that sugar bowl next to it (or one just like it) at auction. Does it have a mark? I didn't think it was Irish Belleek ...
You'd be amazed how even when these seem clean they've got years of grime on them that mutes the colors considerably (even the pearlescent finish on the earliest baskets). Marian Langham (who wrote...
Yes, they did a few Frankenstein versions of pieces from time to time. I recently saw a tiny basket sitting atop the pedestal base for an egg cup. Just when you think you've seen it all, something n...
I have the same piece from the same period. I got it for $800 in a shop near Union Square in San Francisco after 30 years of wanting one. Interesting to note that the seahorses have hooves, where ...
I've never seen that revised shape of the Limpet tea pot in pink tint before, only Cob Lustre (ivory body with yellow detail glaze). By 1986 Cob Lustre was all you could buy most Belleek in, though...
This is the butter plate in the Tridacna pattern according to Richard Degenhardt's Belleek books. It's for pats or curls of butter when you're serving afternoon tea with something like scones you mig...
Nice Rathmore Basket ("the king of all Belleek baskets," with the "Oval Covered Basket" being considered the queen [and most modern day designs being the joker]). :) The "C1" after the word Irelan...
