Burgess & Leigh Small Tureen with Ladle and Underplate
This beautiful tureen was made by Burgess & Leigh in Burslem, England. I do not know the name of the pattern, but it is spectacular! The colors in the transfer pattern are amazing. There are gray borders with gold flowers, cobalt borders with gold and white geometric shapes, arches made of blue and burgundy flowers and green leaves, and a variety of fleur de lis shapes of white, gray, cobalt and burgundy colors. The tureen also has hand painted gold highlights. This tureen consists of a bowl, lid, ladle and underplate. The tureen measures 6.5" at the widest (including handles) and stands 4.75" high with lid. The ladle measures about 6.5" at the longest. The underplate has 2 handles. It measures 6 3/4" in diameter, and 8" across the handles. The gold on the handle of the ladle shows slight wear. Otherwise, all 4 pieces are in excellent condition.
