Burleigh pottery, made in Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands of England, is hand-decorated in a process more than a century old. Designs printed on tissue by copper rollers are applied by hand to fired ceramics, and then the tissue is washed away, leaving the design. The pieces are then fired, glazed and refired, resulting in a distinctive hand-made work of the potter's art. Many of the designs come from antique molds, and all are produced with the same care as other potential heirlooms. Burleigh, in fact, advertises its wares as the antiques of tomorrow.
Burleigh products imported by Ann Marie will enhance any kitchen. From the unpretentious elegance of the Natural White line to more elaborate Asiatic Pheasant, country-flavored Calico in blue or red, delightful Burleigh pinks and the distinctively foliate cobalt blue Arden. Each pattern offers a variety of pieced suited to everything from breakfast to high tea, all hand made and all with forms perfectly adapted to their function. The highlight of the collection may be the commemorative items designed for the Queen's Jubilee, particularly the Beefeater statue.
