Burleigh "Blue Calico" Tea Cup and Saucer
£24.00 Regular Price
Burleigh's famous deep cobalt blue pattern has been made continuously in their 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. Burleigh is the only company in the world still creating transfer printed ceramics in this fashion.
Flared at the rim, these cups have a beautiful elegant vintage shape, with its neat pretty handle they're lovely. The Calico pattern covers the outside, the interior left blank, the saucers complement perfectly.
The cups measure 9cm diam across the rim. 6.5cm deep.
Microwave, and Dishwasher safe.
Made at the Middleport Pottery Burslem, here in the UK!
