Vintage Biscuit Barrel Chintz Pottery Chinese Rose B&L Leighton Cookie Jar


Brand Etsy

This is a 1930s chintz pottery biscuit barrel made by Bourne & Leigh under their Leighton Pottery brand in the Chinese Rose pattern. The piece is decorated with a floral transfer print with larger roses that I think are hand finished in enamel paint. The piece has a silverplated top rim, lid and handle. It measures 5 1/2 in height, exclusive of the lids finial and the handle, and has a diameter of about 6 at its widest - it weighs 1 lb and 9 oz. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or wear to the pottery - the lid and top rim have some tiny tarnish spots, very minor.
This is a lovely display piece - great addition to either a biscuit barrel, cookie jar or chintz pottery collection!
