This romantic dolphin candlestick celebrates the design of the romantic period and Belleek's distinctive character of fine decorative giftware. Inspired by the Greek myth of Taras, son of Poseidon who was saved from shipwreck by a dolphin.

Belleek of Ireland is renowned worldwide for its creamy, translucent, fine Parian china, with the added qualities of strength and lightness. The dolphin candle holder was originally designed before 1872 and is listed as one of the many pieces displayed at the Paris Exhibition in 1900.
