Belleek Marks.

Since the pottery was founded in 1857 Belleek has used many variations of colour and trademark. One of the earliest was a circular band with the wording 'Belleek Enniskillen'. This was followed by the more familiar combined Wolfhound Harp and Round Tower and these have been the core features of the factory logo ever since.

Below is a general guide to the various Belleek production periods and the marks used.

Belleek Basket Marks

Working out the age of a Belleek basket can be quite an involved exercise. The following tables and list of dates when changes were made should assist basket dating. As a rule if painted, then it is a newer post 50's example with ® included in the name pad although some newer baskets are unpainted. Those later unpainted examples though are rare to find generally. Good luck with your basket dating.
