The Burleigh Story
The Preserve Company is pleased to offer is Burleigh Pottery which is a company located in Middleport, England. We recognized the quality they offered and what the Burleigh company stands for.
"Burleigh has a rich heritage of design and craftsmanship, and a fascinating story of generation after generation producing works of ceramic art from the model Victorian Factory - Middleport Pottery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent.
Our products are still hand made using the timeless skills of Stoke-on-Trent, such as the decorating method of underglaze transfer printing from engravings. This was once a common process in the English pottery industry, but is now extremely rare.
This beautiful English product comes to you from the Middleport Pottery built in 1889 next to the Trent and Mersey Canal. The tradition of making English earthenware 'from clay to cup' continues, a true renaissance in ceramics from the heart of Stoke-on-Trent. Breakfast, tea, dinner sets, jugs, mugs, cups and saucers, bowls, plates, platters, kitchenware, bathroom ware - many are reissues from our archive moulds."
