The Leighton Pottery was previously Bourne & Leigh, and only operated in Burslem between 1940 to 1952.  This really unusual  bowl (measuring 22cm wide and 10.5cm high) is a lovely example of design during the war period and was probably made c1940. It is in good condiiton commnesurate to its age and planted generously with scented geranium 'Fragrans Variegata'.


Pelargonium Fragrans 'Variegata' is part of our heritage scented geranium range which has dainty small white flowers with pink centres. It flowers from April to October and its leaves are a variegated apple green colour splashed with golden cream. It has a spicy pine nutmeg scent, grows to about 20cm and is fairly compact. Ut wont get much bigger than the picture but will fill out sending out tall flowr spikes and also drapes nicely down the side of the bowl. 


All our plants are accompanied with detailed care instructions and packed up carefully in compostable recycled boxes packed with straw and shipped with an overnight courier service.


Our potted plants make lovely sustainable gifts as nothing is single use or thrown away - the bowl can be used for multiple purposes and the violas can be re- planted outdoors or into a bigger pot if necessary. Each pot comes with a personalised gift card and the option of our Cambridge Imprint wrapping paper and vintage velvet ribbon.
