A Bit of History About Belleek
The town of Belleek in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, began producing pottery in the 1850s in an effort to recover from the Irish potato famine. In the 1860s, the factory perfected its recipe for Parian porcelain and quickly gained prestige throughout Ireland, England, the United States, Canada, and Australia. Belleek is still produced today and considered highly collectible.
