  • Description

Belleek greyhound figurine is the male version of this Irish china sculpture that is enhanced with embossed detailing.

Halahan Dunbar was the Church of Ireland Curate in Belleek from 1865 - 1867. While there, he was commissioned by Robert Armstrong to design the Figure of a Greyhound as part of a centerpiece known as the "Group of Greyhounds" that eventually became one of Belleek’s most enduring creations. The Figure of a Greyhound was retired in 1982, but has remained an iconic symbol of Belleek craftsmanship.

The Belleek China Greyhound has been re-introduced as part of the 2009 Archive Collection.

The Belleek greyhound figurine has been re-introduced from the archives in a limited edition of 450 pieces. The Belleek male greyhound is crafted of fine Irish china; he stands 3" wide x 4 1/2" long x 6 1/4" tall.

The Belleek China Greyhound sculpture is handmade in Belleek, Ireland; the figurine is received gift boxed, complements of The Irish Gift House.
