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.
This beautifully handcrafted Belleek Queen's Royal Gift Basket with its intricately hand-painted flowers includes a cute ladybird and bee accent on the top of the basket alongside the meticulous hand flowering. This basket is made by hand by the skilled craftspeople in Belleek Pottery, due to the complexity of these pieces, each piece is unique and the one you buy is like no other.
