A charming Burleigh Ware pottery canoe, made by Burgess & Leigh of Burslem, Staffordshire in the 1930s. It was probably intended as a small planter but works well as a purely decorative piece. It features a Native American Indian wearing a lavish feather headdress paddling his traditional canoe. It is handpainted and has a semi-matte glaze. The base bears the Burleigh Ware backstamp and the model number 5893.
It is in good condition with minor wear to the glaze.
