BURGESS & LEIGH
"SWANS IN FLIGHT"
1940's or 50's
This Superb Vase comes from Burgess & Leigh's Middleport Pottery in Burslem Staffordshire under their Burleigh Ware Tradename.
The Vase is 7 3/4" Tall and has a Pedestal Base of 4 7/8" in Diameter and a Top Rim which is slightly Oval and Measures 6" by 5 1/4".
The Vase has a Sky Blue Background but has been Deeply Sculpted. The Sculpted Areas reveal a Mottled Brown and Grey/Blue Surface.
The Sculpting creates a Panorama around the Bowl of 6 Swans taking off from a Reeded Pool.
The Effect is Amazing.
On the Base is "Burleigh Ware" over "BURGESS & LEIGH LTD" in an Arc over the Bee Hive Trade Mark with "EST" and "1851" on either side and over "BURSLEM ENGLAND".
There are no Leaves around the Mark.
I believe this suggests manufacture in the 1940's or 50's.
In addition there's an impressed Pattern Number of "201" and a further Handwritten Number of "0457 4".
The vase has been damaged at some point in its History with a Section being Broken from the Rim.
However, this has been repaired and the Vase is Otherwise in Perfect Condition. There are no further flaws, damage, chips, cracks or crazing.
All China is well packed before posting.
