These treasures are very special to me. My only pieces of Belleek, Irish china! Known for their delicate composition, this china is so sheer and translucent, you can almost see your hand through it. I recieved the cream and sugar bowl as a wedding present in 1972. My cousin, Bonnie Lynn, gave me the gorgeous pitcher from her collection a few years before she died. I value it as if it is a priceless family heirloom.

  1. nice collection. The pitchen looks like it has a basket weave pattern.
    It's nice that Bonnie Lynn gave you her pitcher, now you'll always have something of hers to treasure.

  9. I have been lucky enough to inherit my Mother-In-Law's entire set of Baleek Irish China. It is so delicate and beautiful. I am enjoying your music here too. Ireland is at the top of my places to visit someday!

  12. I'm glad you love them so well; I live near the Belleek pottery! Whenever we drive past it I want to visit but am always voted down by a carload of kids and the driving-man.

    Ditto any antique shops.
