Yes HB, these are jam/preserve pots which came in many colours, including the
Electric blue. Not usually marked at all. I think they had a tied-down paper top.

Yours would be the "Green Majolica" glaze.

Thanks for that; imagining it filled with jam makes me like it even more.

Unusual Denby Chatsworth pattern plate, as it has a date and number on the reverse and a D on the front. Glaze test piece?












Normal one for comparison :

Yes Naomi these do turn up, and like you say, must be trials. They were also made at
Langley Mill, with the windmill backstasmp but the glazes/firing were different, usually
a bit darker, making mixing and matching difficult. Unfortunately the letters on the
front render them worthless as tableware replacemebts.

Large ceramic bowl - Denby 'chevron'

Post by Qnssekr on July 25th 2015, 1:28 pm

Hi, I found this large bowl the other day. The markers mark looks like a Royal Copenhagen stamp but it's in ink. I've search the web for Royal Copenhagen marks and nothing matches it. Unfortunately the mark is blurry so it is hard to make out any details. Would anyone have any insight as to who the manufactured this bowl? It measure 9" in diameter and 3" high. The color is olive green with a matte glaze finish. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Is this a Glyndebourne pot?

Post by Howard Lincoln on September 5th 2015, 10:51 pm

I acquired this pot last weekend at a flea market. My research led me here and I was wondering if anyone could confirm that it is a Glyndebourne pot? I can only find 2 images on the internet (one being that attached to the post below. There are distinct similarities with the one I bought. Any information would be appreciated






studio-pots wrote:Glyn meets Shoji

The large vase below is from the "Glyndebourne" range that was created by Glyn Colledge between 1948 and 1950. Contemporary reports suggest that during this period the Denby factory was a giant studio pottery, centred around the work of Colledge. The shapes were hand thrown and the horizontally ribbed surface was intentional. The hand painted decoration, although in pastel colours, is most certainly in the Chinese/Japanese style.

In the book, Denby Pottery 1809-1997 by Irene and Gordon Hopwood, it states, "these pieces are amongst the most rare ever created by Glyn Colledge and confirm his status as a true studio potter."



Note: These were not signed just having Bourne Denby Derby in a circle and Made in England underneath the circle.

Yes it is a Glyndebourne vase, there are several shapes and colour variations.
They don't turn up all that often.

Thank you - in that case I guess I got it for a reasonable price. 10 paid

I do have a soft spot for some of the Denby range and feel that it is far more worthy and important than some of the more collectable British pottery.

Collecting and good taste often don't go hand in hand sadly.

Denby? Pottery jug

Post by rob s on September 15th 2015, 11:04 am

Apologies for images not being of correct orientation, laptop on the blink, having to use my phone.
I think it is Denby, not sure about age, impressed letter E in the base along with made in England printed stamp.
