Ironstone creamware jug. 

This vintage Burleigh Ware jug has a thoroughly utilitarian look with its simple, slightly tapered profile. It's in a creamy, off-white colour and is without any decoration or embellishment.

Made by Burgess and Leigh, the jug is dated to the 1940s. It has the Burleigh Ware mark with the beehive introduced around that time stamped on the base. The beehive mark was originally used from around 1862 with many variations over the years.

21cm tall, 12cm diameter across the base.

The jug is in very good vintage condition, without cracks or chips and with a good solid handle. There's some crazing and little age marks so this would be great to use as a vase for fresh or dried flowers. Or to pop kitchen utensils in.

Founded in 1851 as Burgess & Leigh, and currently celebrating its 170th anniversary, Burleigh Pottery is based in the town of Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. The company still produces earthenware pottery from its Middleport factory which is the last working Victorian pottery in England. The 'Burleigh' brand name was introduced in the 1930s and combines the names of the company's founders, William Leigh and Frederick Rathbone Burgess.

All our pieces have a past and may feature age-related marks which we believe add to their charm. If you have any questions about this item or would like to see further photographs, please do get in touch.
