Regal Peacock is so blue-blooded it's almost royal. Launched in 1913, it caught the eye of Queen Mary who received the first examples of this design. One hundred years later, this noble pattern was chosen to be presented to HRH the Prince of Wales when he visited Burleigh's historic home, Middleport Pottery. Based on an Oriental fable it shows the "Birds Congress", gathering to elect a King of the Birds. Naturally, the Peacock, being the most beautiful, was proclaimed King.
This design is hand-printed from a newly created engraved copper plate, which took a highly-skilled craftsman over 2000 hours to create. Burleigh is the only pottery in the world to continue this traditional and labour intensive method of decoration.
This attention to detail makes Burleigh's teawares the tea lovers' choice.
This elegant Teacup, Saucer & Plate gift set is perfect for afternoon tea parties.
We love Burleigh Teaware!
