Belleek Catalina Round Basket



Available to order, delivery September 21

This colourfully decorated Basket has been inspired from local Irish wild flowers and woodlands found in nearby Castle Archdale Forest Park in County Fermanagh. This ancient limestone landscape on the shores of Lower Lough Erne supports a unique mix of wildlife and biodiversity. The hand painted decoration includes pink wild roses, forget-me-nots, thistles and daffodils. A beautiful hand applied butterfly is hidden amongst the foliage also a tiny ladybird and bumblebee.
The creation of each Belleek basket tells us a story about the amazing art of Belleek basket making. Basket and flower making was introduced to Belleek by William Henshall who came to work for Belleek Pottery in the late 1860s. Over the next forty years he developed the craft and trained the local craftsmen in the necessary skills. These in turn passed their skills down through the following generations to the present day. Each basket comes gift boxed and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
