Rare ANTIQUE IRISH BELLEEK GRASS TEA WARE CUP & SAUCER DOUBLE 1st Black Mark
!!! … !!! … !!! ~~~
Lovely! Antique Belleek Cup & Saucer
Here is a beautiful antique Irish Belleek porcelain tea cup and saucer in the Grass Tea Ware pattern. This lovely cup and saucer features the embossed pattern of grass and leaves hand painted in hues of tan and green. The tea cup is marked on the bottom with the 1st black mark, dating it from 1863-1890. The saucer is double marked, which is rare; it is black stamp marked with the 1st black mark, like the tea cup, and in addition, it has an impressed, "BELLEEKFERMANAGH". The impressed lettering was believed to be used quite early in the Belleek company's history.
This sweet tea cup measures 2 1/2" tall, 1 1/2", across the base, and just under 3" across the open top. The saucer measures 5" across. Both pieces are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, nicks, or hairlines. There is an impressed "L" on the bottom of the saucer which we believe to be the artist's initial (see last picture).
