Asiatic Pheasant Tea Plate

This was the most popular pattern of the Victorian era introduced in 1827. Its romantic gentle blue pattern proved to be more popular than its dark Georgian counterpart Willow. Asiatic Pheasants took pride of place from the kitchen dresser to the dining table. The sheer volume of demand has left us today with many antique pieces. There are modern imposters but Burleigh's is as the original pieces were in the 19th century!
To look after your Burleighware we recommend that you keep your dishwasher regularly filled with rinse aid - this will keep it in good condition. For very large items we recommend that these should be washed by hand.
Burleigh ceramics are still hand-made in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Famous for their blue and white china, Burleigh has been creating unique English designs since 1851. Burleigh products use the 200 year old decorating process of underglaze transfer printing from engravings. This was once a common process in the English pottery industry, but is now extremely rare.
A family business with a rich heritage of design and craftmanship, Burleigh is still manufacturing a pure English earthenware product in the 21st century, using ball clay from Devon and china clay from Cornwall.
