Belleek Pottery Visit

Beleek Pottery was not on our original itinerary, but due to extreme
windy weather on the coast where we were scheduled to visit, 
we visited Belleek Pottery instead.  (YAY!)
The traditional Shamrock Tableware is my favorite. 
I have a teapot, sugar and creamer in my collection of "shamrock" dishware. 
Before our assigned time for our guided tour, we had time to browse and shop.
I developed even more admiration for Belleek during the tour. 





Talented workers hand paint the pieces.






And, the "artists" make the intricate tiny flowers and shamrocks.




Commemorative pieces: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding basket
and the Prince Louis of Cambridge baby cup.
Notice the amazing handmade tiny flowers.
Order forms were located throughout the shop.
The products were displayed with prices in British Sterling,
because we were back in Northern Ireland. 
(There are no borders to cross as your travel.)
We made a few purchased to be delivered in "5 to 7 weeks."
Austin found the tea room. LOL
