1921 - 1954
[Belleek, Co. Fermanagh]
This four-stranded basket, with its handcrafted flowers and latticework, was made at Belleek Pottery between 1921 and 1954. A piece like this would have taken at least 12 days to complete. This piece came from a private collection belonging to Cyril Arnold. Mr. Arnold worked for many years at the Belleek Pottery, becoming design manager in 1945 and general manager in 1966.
