ANTIQUE BELLEEK IRISH PORCELAIN RARE PINK SCROLL PATTERN
CREAM JUG SECOND BLACK MARK BELLEEK C.1891-1926
Belleek art pottery - a Belleek porcelain jug in wonderful
display condition and guaranteed genuine. The jug is skillfully crafted
in a striking and rare original design known as the Scroll pattern,
highlighted in an exquisite pink colour way. Scroll pattern
pieces were produced during the Second Black mark period in limited
quantities and are today highly
prized by Belleek collectors worldwide. Cream jugs are among the rarest
pieces of all as only one was made per tea set and the wafer thin
spout, rim and intricate rope twist handle are easily damaged. A highly
desirable item for the discerning collector of best antique china and
Irish Belleek pottery." Antiques Expert

An excellent piece in great shape for display with no
restoration. There are two small flake rim chips - to the left of the
spout when viewed from the front - one is v-shaped and extends into
an associated short glaze
hairline as illustrated. This blends in with the design and
does not significantly detract from the visual and display qualities
of a rare piece. You are unlikely to find a better surviving example.
