Burleigh's famous deep cobalt blue pattern has been made continuously in our factory for over 40 years. Its popularity continues as ever! Although unique, this pattern was derived from early Victorian patterns which had their roots in Chinese porcelain, representing the spring with fallen prunus blossom onto cracked ice.
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.
