Just a quick note to let you know about a new Burleigh Website we’ve come across recently.
Collector Steven Goss got in touch with us to share the news about his new website, www.burleighware.net. Steven is a dedicated collector of the Burleigh Ware Zenith shape.

Zenith was a fantastic Art Deco shape produced by Burleigh Ware in the 1930s. I’ve borrowed an example picture from Steven’s website to give you an idea of what to expect. The website itself is worth checking out, even if you’re not a collector — there are dozens of different patterns.
I should think this is one of the best guides to Zenith ware patterns that you’ll find anywhere.
Steven also has a few pieces for sale, so if you’re looking to start or extend your collection, his website may be worth a look.
Recently a friend approached me with an interesting pair of pottery lions, to see if I knew anything about them.
After a little research they proved to be rather interesting:
Ashtead Pottery Genozo Toothpaste Advertising Figurines
The Ashtead Pottery was only in operation from c1923 until 1935 and was founded to help disabled ex-servicemen.
These Genozo advertising lions were made to promote Genozo toothpaste and are an attractive piece of Art Deco advertising memorabilia. They come in two sizes, of which my friend’s pair are the smaller.
These lions also have an interesting military connection, as they were designed by Percy Metcalfe (1895-1970), who was well known for his gallantry medal designs, most notably the George Cross.
This pair of lions have been entered into an auction sale by my friend, and will appear at Tennants Auctioneers in their Spring Fine Art Sale this Saturday, 21st March 2015, lot number 450.
