This lovely Irish Belleek porcelain dish measures 2" high by 8.5" long by 2" wide. It is formed by scallop shells, with a coral reef along the base edge. It is glazed in a white porcelain with a distinct pink tint on the outer shell edges and the coral reef base. This vessel is likely for mints or perhaps olives. It bears the first period black mark for 1863-1891 as well as the Belleek name in small letters in the foot ring. There is also a registration mark, but there is nothing legible. This beautiful dish is in original factory condition, with the usual glaze nuances, including a brownish pinpoint inclusion (literally the size of a pin tip) on an exterior shell and a black speck on the interior base, covered in clear glaze, so difinitely in the making.
