The Burleigh company was founded in 1851 as Hulme & Booth in Burslem, Stafordshire, named after the original founders.   When the pottery changed hands in 1862, it was renamed ‘Burgess & Leigh’, after names of the new owners.  Before 1920, the company primarily produced toiletware, but expanded its tableware ranges in the 1920s and 1930s, and these are regarded as the firm's golden years. The new brightly decorated, hand-painted and enamelled designs were very popular, with most patterns being designed by art director Harold Bennett. Other designers included Charles Wilkes, Ernest Baily and Charlotte Rhead who was employed from 1926 to 1931.  The business was sold in 1999 and then again in 2010 when it was acquired by the company producing Denby Pottery.
