Neptune Seashell, Belleek – a delicate soft pink scooped shell teacup with two tiny conch shell feet and sculptured coral handle.
This Neptune Seashell Teacup and Saucer design is a Belleek classic that was brought back into production in 2001 with the Belleek in Retrospect 2001 marking. I purchased this set new from QVC. There were only a very limited number of sets offered for sale and they were gone in a matter of minutes. I am so glad I was able to get a set before it sold out. I don’t think they ever brought it back unless Belleek decides to do another re-issue.
Features of Neptune
The delicate soft pink scooped shell teacup measures 3½ inches in diameter. The feet are two tiny conch shells trimmed in gold while the handle is a sculptured piece of coral. This piece of “coral” extends beyond the cup and acts like a third feet so that the cup sits firmly on the saucer.
The matching saucer is 5½ inches in diameter with a ribbed pattern resembling an oyster shell. Both the rim of the teacup and saucer are trimmed in gold. This is a nice finish which makes both pieces really special.
