Irish Pottery - Belleek Fine China, Nicholas Mosse
When Ann Marie visited Ireland for the first time, she was most impressed with the warmth of the people, and the natural grace of the Irish countryside. Kith and kin, hearth and home, from Belfast in the North to Cork on the Celtic Sea. It is that love of Ireland's purity and wholesomeness that comes across in our collection of fine Irish pottery. The artisanal pottery of Nicholas Mosse is at the front and center of our imported pottery from Ireland. One look, and we're sure you'll understand why... Nicholas Mosse pottery is a brilliant modern homage to the early Sponge-ware style of traditional Irish pottery that dominated the European landscape during the early Industrial Era.
Every piece of Nicholas Mosse pottery is handmade in Bennettsbridge, with patterns representing local Irish plants, flowers and wildlife. Each one a glorious tribute to the ancient sponge-ware masters, in truly functional pottery form. Choose from among the place settings, platters, collectibles and more. If you missed out on a pattern, you may still find it in the retired pieces section, while the newest patterns and seasonal designs can always be found first at Ann Marie's. There's even a fabulous line of Nicholas Mosse linens, for the perfect way to complete the table setting.
At Ann Marie, we recognize and wholeheartedly appreciate the beauty of traditional Irish pottery. Whether you've ever been to Ireland or not, a collection of Nicholas Mosse sponge-ware will certainly make you feel like you're on the island!
