Burleighware Art Deco designs also included a large selection of tea, coffee and dinnerware. "Zenith" is the most popular shape from this period with an angular design and hand painted decoration of landscapes or flowers. Other shapes are "London" and "Imperial".

Burgess and Leigh produced a vast range of yellow novelty jugs. Other jug colours were produced, but the yellow jugs are the most sought after by collectors. These jugs have handles modelled as animals, figures, sporting characters and even the rare and most sought after guardsman.

There is a good range of Burgess and Leigh vases to collect including Strong geometric shaped lozenge vases and trumpet shaped flower vases with moulded birds.
