The iconic Burleigh is celebrating a significant birthday this year… 170 years no less!
Burleigh is a British design institution, renowned for its classic patterns and hand-decorated pottery which is still made in Middleport, the traditional home of UK pottery. For over a century and a half the company has provided crockery for Royal families, celebrities, luxury establishments and thousands of family tables up and down the land.
Freddie’s Flowers and Burleigh have a shared love of all things floral. In fact, Burleigh’s timeless style, love of craft and huge expertise make them the perfect partners in floral fun. What could possibly look better in one of their jugs than our fantastic flowers?
To celebrate Burleigh’s 170th birthday, we’ve created an arrangement inspired by their classic blue and white hues (see above!). This week and next, we’ll be sending out this timeless bunch in boxes adorned with their famous pattern – just so everyone knows how great they are!
If that wasn’t enough, we’ve worked with them to create a range of jugs in a classic chintz pattern, with a modern Freddie’s twist. Our range of Burleigh jugs comes in beautiful pink, and they’re exclusive to Freddie’s Flowers… you won’t find them anywhere else!
Freddie even visited the Burleigh pottery in Middleport, for a first-had look at exactly how their traditional, hand-finished process works. He thought it looked mighty impressive and slightly fiddly – a bit like flower arranging!
We’ve got the Bigger Burleigh Jug, the Smaller Burleigh Jug and the Mini Burleigh Jug, all available through the Freddie’s Shop. Perfect for flowers you’ve trimmed down, they’ll make the ideal centrepiece for a celebration… especially a 170th birthday!
So, here’s to the brilliant Burleigh. Many happy returns and we hope to see you in another 170 years time.
