Prints Charming: Blue Calico by Burleigh

Blue Calico

Although producing Blue Calico is a time-consuming process, it is truly a labor of love. Because each piece is made by hand and bears the distinctive touch of an individual decorator, collectors know they are getting one-of-a-kind treasures. At a time when most dishes are mass-produced by machines, it is especially poignant to collect a piece that exemplifies the skills of dedicated craftspeople using a process repeated through many generations.


  1. has a lot – some made by Burleigh, some by Crownford – it’s been my kitchen china for 44 years, and I still love it. I especially like the serving pieces – pitchers, serving bowls, platters, sugar bowls – very sweet, timeless china.

  2. I have been collecting Calico Blue Burleigh for 45 years and am now finding it hard to find There are a few pieces such as the hen on nest that I have not been able to find now when I can afford them Also the Crownford Stamp has been discontinued The only place I find any of it is on EBay and Etsy Can you help?

  3. Yep – it’s lovely and a friend, Lois Ghost, had a valuable antique collection of the child’s tea set sizee – splattered when her
    husband painted the wall and it all came crashing down. A word to the wise – don’t let your husband paint near any shelves !
