Softly tinted details on the Irish-crafted Neptune Pink teapot by Belleek Pottery gently highlight a unique and memorable teatime accoutrement.

Since 1857, Belleek Pottery has made its mark as Ireland’s oldest working pottery, housed in a neo-Georgian building in the company’s namesake village. Throughout the years, the brand gained notoriety for its Parian pieces—porcelain crafted to resemble marble. The intricate grooves and creases displayed in the shell design of Belleek’s Neptune Pink teapot demonstrate this technique. This delicate and jovial piece will stand out wherever you choose to display it or use it.
