    Hello I am trying to determine the market value of some Belleek pieces that were collected by my mother. All pieces are the 1965-1980 green mark. This includes a basket weave tea pot, creamer, and sugar bowl, two shamrock bud vases, shell shaped tea cup, shell shaped small dish, butter tub, a cheese/butter covered dish (yellow, top is a cottage with a thatched roof), basket weave jar with lid, and a shamrock bowl with an eyelet rim. I appreciate any help you can give me. Also Do you know what people are paying for Belleek currently.
    Thank you

    I have an old Belleek shaving mug that belonged to my Grandfather. It is very ornate with gold handle and trim, etc. It is dated 1901 with the initials M.J.M painted on the bottom, but the Belleek mark for that period doesn’t seem right, i.e., it looks like it a circle with a painter’s pallet and brushes? Any idea of what it actually is and worth?
