Made in its renowned UK workshop since 1851, Burleigh Ware's famous Calico pattern was inspired by early Victorian designs. With its rich depth of color, the deep cobalt and white blossoms are lovingly hand-applied with a unique tissue print process. The Burleigh story carries through in every piece, still made by hand in the same way it has been for generations, and never compromising its enduring quality.
In 2011, The Prince's Regeneration Trust acquired the pottery site to save it from closure, embarking on a long-term conservation project.
"It takes 25 pairs of hands to create a single piece of Burleigh pottery, and each pot is meticulously hand-finished. Creating something good, something that lasts, something that is above fashion and trends, something timeless, can’t be hurried." —Burleigh
"The intricate decorating process begins. Tissue paper is first printed from a hand-engraved copper roller and the tissue rolls off the printing machine and is cut out by a transferrer. The tissue is applied to the biscuitware, and is rubbed on with a brush and soft soap, transferring the elegant Burleigh pattern." —Burleigh
The blue caddy is very pretty and looks just right on my counter.
