A Little Bit about Leighton Bourne & Leigh Ltd Pomegranate

There are always pleasant surprises often hiding just under something else on tables at garage sales and thrift store. 




DH found this oval Chintz that I had not noticed as I scanned and walked past a  'loaded with treasures' garage sale table. DH was following and found it. This often happens when we are out 'shopping' at thrifts and garage sales, what one misses the other finds.



It has been a bit of a search online to find 'more' about the dish. Thought I would include close ups of the various fruit and designs for the Pomegranate pattern.



This Chintz oval tab handled bowl called "Pomegranate" by Leighton Bourne & Leigh Ltd, Made in England. Number 4113 was most likely produced in the 1930's.



I found one reference and picture of a Leighton dish here: Leighton Bourne & Leigh Ltd Dish c. 1930. Check the link back to see that dish.

Chintz patterns have long been a favorite collectible of mine. Its always fun to find a chintz piece when out hunting.


Always something new to research.


It is my 66th Birthday today. 
Peonies and Roses are my favorite flowers.


Its been a year of changes; health issues, life changes. Friends and family are so very important.

  12. My friend Sally and I used to do the same thing with antique stores, yard sales, and flea markets only we were looking for vintage glass Christmas ornaments. This is such an unusual piece and I love fruit themed patterns. I have an old English pattern of dinnerware that also features pomegranites. Now you have me wanting to take them down and photograph.

    Happy Birthday and everything good in your new year.
