Denby Pottery (Derbyshire)

Post by Josordoni on June 9th 2008, 6:17 pm

Nice glazes to this 6.5 in 170 mm diameter bowl - came with the batch of Scandi Studio pots.

Incised initial D to underside. Any ideas anyone?

The Denby 'Trees' pattern (my absolute favourite Denby design) was produced in 1971 and for one year only - this would explain it's scarcity - in 3 years of looking I've only managed to track down two side plates :-(

Some more info below:

* 'Into the trees Denby Pottery have produced a new ten-piece range of stoneware called Trees. Two sizes of plate (6in and 8in) together with a cereal or soup bowl form the basis of the set, which also includes a milk jug, tea pot and coffee pot, mug and saucer, and a sugar bowl. The shape was designed by Gill Pemberton and the decoration - black trees set against a spotted sky and candy striped hills - was by Diana Woodcock Beckering.'

Denby 'Tigo Ware' by Tibor Reich

Post by Pip on June 9th 2009, 11:31 am

Tibor Reich (1916 - 1996) born in Hungary.

Tibor Reich designed a highly collectable black & white range for Denby in the 1950s. He's also famous for his designs in other fields such as textiles.

When I first became a professional dealer I sold this dish on eBay - I didn't know what it was then but it sold for a lot more than I was expecting so had a feeling it might be special! I now know that it was a 'Pusta' (star) dish from the Tigo Range and is the same shape as the 'T' he used in his Tigor logo. See here for logo http://www.retroselect.com/Denby/tibor%20design%20large%20march%201959.gif

More from the Burlington range - these pastel colours were slightly later than the black & white above.

Alice Teichner Denby bowl

Post by Davee on May 11th 2010, 10:15 pm

I aquired this Denby bowl recentley and was hoping someone could throw some light on the markings on the base. The AT monogram i'm pretty sure is Alice Teichner but I don't understand the W T L & S, any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

1922 teapots

Post by MotoMike on July 6th 2011, 5:31 pm

Hi everyone.

I have developed a fondness (obsession?) for the Denby 1922 Never Drip teapot. To my eye it exemplifies timeless beauty and function perfectly combined. Currently I have about 8 in sizes ranging from 3/4pint to 2 1/2 pint. I'm interested in finding out what sizes these pots came in and what sizes were available through the ranges. I am often confused by the sizes that were/are made. I know that on some Denby actually stamped the size on the pot. I have one stamped 1 1/4 pint and one stamped 3/4 pint. but they both hold more than stamped. So as people write about them I think sometimes they actually pour a full pot into a measuring vessel and report how much it actually holds, and other times they rely on documentation.

So, if anyone knows the different sizes that have been made of this pot design, I would greatly appreciate that info.

Kind Regards,
Mike

No probs Excellent
Now, is it just me, or does anybody else see the resemblence between Adam's Minaret vase and Bistoboy's Jersey bowl from the Jersey thread?
http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=184&u=13670191
It looks to me as if one took inspiration from the other, but the question is, which came first?

I don't know which came first - the jersey bowl seems more 50/60s in concept- however I can categorically say that minaret was not influenced by it - so I'm afraid your premise is sadly not borne (or bourne) out by history - regards Dave Y

Unusual abstract Denby jug

Post by Davee on October 27th 2011, 11:12 pm

Picked up this Denby jug with a sgraffito and glazed abstract design to both sides, the base stamp dates from 1945 to the 60's. I can't find anything like it on-line or in any of my books, does anyone know anything about it please.

Thanks, just need to find the designer now, initially when I picked it up I thought of Tibor Reich designs that were made by Denby, but I don't think this is one of those.

It was from the Cloisonne range issued in 1957 - the shape was designed by Albert Colledge and the surface decoration by Glyn Colledge.
