BurleighBurleigh Regal PeacockBurleigh-Regal-Peacock

This classic Burleigh pattern was previously called 'Bluebird', and depicts the Oriental 'fable of the birds congress' where different birds come together to elect a king. The peacock felt that as the most beautiful bird he should be king.

First produced in 1913, we welcome the return of this design, re-named 'Regal Peacock'. See the range on our Regal Peacock page.
