Antique tureen with lid and matching ladle in white ceramic with blue floral detailing. Stamped on base with 'E Bourne & JE Leigh' made in Burslem, England.
The tureen is both practical and decorative. It makes the perfect serving dish and would look stunning displayed on a kitchen shelf.
History: Bourne & Leigh Ltd originated in 1892 and the original partners were Mr E Bourne and Mr J E Leigh. It appears that in 1913 Bourne left the partnership and Bourne & Leigh eventually closed in 1941 as part of the wartime concentration scheme.
Due to the nature and age of the item, it is showing some signs of wear and crazing with discolouration inside the tureen. In overall good antique condition with no cracks or chips. Please see photos as these form part of the description.
Measures approx. 13cm high including top handle x 23cm including side handles.
