vintage orange Burleigh Orbit cup & saucer | H is for Home

Wow!! How about this for an eye-popping bit of orange Op Art loveliness?

This cup & saucer is from the Orbit range produced by Burleigh in the 1960s. It’s superb and quite uncharacteristic of their usual output which is normally very traditional. Someone must have had a rush of blood to the head (or taken LSD) that week. It’s quite a rare pattern and doesn’t appear for sale often.

It’s a great display piece, and would also provide the perfect pick-me-up start to the day filled with strong coffee. We’ve got a few for sale and they’ll appear in our webshop soon.

  1. I love all of the orange things you post on this site. On one of your Etsy Lists, you had an awesome orange fruit basket. I really like the retro feel though. Wonderful taste all around (get it, circles :-P). Thanks for sharing so many great things. Have a lovely weekend!

    All the best,
