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.
Roti n Rice featured this beautiful teacup and saucer where it was used to serve Lavender Tea. Please check out the post by clicking on the link or picture below.

My goodness, the detail on this one! I love the tiny conch shell feet!!! If I owned this, I would be terrified of taking it out of my china cupboard as I have 3 rambunctious boys tearing in and out of the kitchen, so often *gasp*
This one is a real beauty! I rarely use it because it is so delicate. The conch shell feet are just adorable.

Such a beautiful teacup and saucer. I will have to start shopping for teacups instead of mugs 🙂
Where ever did you find this tea cup … it is beyond delicate and beautiful … popped in to see if it was for sale … I am sure I cannot afford it anyway … just curious … but I do love it …
I actually bought this more than a decade ago on one of the home shopping network. They only had a limited quantity on sale and it went fast. I didn’t think I was going to get it as they announced that it was sold out while I was still on the phone. 🙂
