The design of this basket represents a floral shape. Flowers are one of Belleek Pottery's decorative identities where wonderful floral motifs and hand applied flowers grace the sides of many collections. This hand woven basket is also decorated with hand applied elements depicting each season throughout the calendar year.
Green branches draw you around the basket where yellow as well as purple buds begin to bloom in springtime. The wils suggest summer, pink and yellow roses found in hedgerows throughout the Irish countryside with dragonflies and bees nearby. Fall approaches as you move past juicy red and green apples towards burnt orange Autumn leaves. The holly green leaves, red berries and also red roses give a festive feel announcing Winter.
This basket is a celebration of the wondrous cycle of life as it ebbs and flows through the four unique and special seasons.
Each year Belleek creates an Annual Basket which receives a special back stamp only made during that particular year.
