{Burleigh; Love for China made in England}

Some Burleighs China
Today is dedicated to the amazing beautiful and delicate china. Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Burleigh has been making beautiful handcrafted pottery for over 160 years. And for a long time, I’ve admired their blue and white floral jugs.  But it was only recently that I found out that they make such a huge range of crockery and in lots of different floral patterns. You’ll find everything you need for an afternoon tea from teapots and cake plates to sandwich trays, bowls and jugs. Check it my favorites:

1-. Calico Red
2-. Calico Blue
3-. Rosie´s Hen

4-. Victoria Chinz
