    Belleek Porcelain from the Collection of Linda N. Beard

    This periodically rotating exhibition of Belleek porcelain comprises masterworks from the comprehensive and noted collection of Linda N. Beard. The roots of Belleek porcelain production lay in the lands of John Caldwell Bloomfield, who in 1849 had a geologic survey of his property in the village of Belleek, County Fermanagh, in what would later become Northern Ireland, that revealed rich deposits of minerals.

  4. Permanent Collection

    Permanent Collection
