An unknown design thay turns up occasionally. It presumably had a name, but I've
never found out what it was. Late 1930s, and probably by Alice Teichtner, 9 in high.

My 2 "Cheviot" ware vases 17" high,
Designed by Glyn College, mid-1950s

CH506 - White.
(1950s price was 3 15/- each.)

CH502 - Green with white decoration.
(1950s price was 4 10/- each.)

The green one is not marked, as there are some
glaze flaws, so was probably graded as a second.

Denby "Tube-lined ware" 1920s. Rarely marked, bases
are glazed over, unlike most Denby.
Sometimes seen for sale as Moorcroft, even though the body
(and weight) is obviously stoneware!

DENBY ANIMALS - SIZES AND GLAZE COLOURS.

I compiled this list years ago, using the info in the Denby books, and measuring
actual examples in various collections. It's not entirely complete as eg. there
was no complete set of geese to examine, and other examples have probably
been discovered since, but here it is anyway.

Larger printable sheets can be downloaded here- (940Kb Zip file).

A wonderful piece of information, DD, that must have taken you many hours to compile. Thank you for sharing it.

Bourne Denby pepper and mustard pot in (correct me if I'm wrong) the Cloisonn pattern, representing amoeba or bacteria, designed by Glyn Colledge in 1956 and issued from 1957.

A funny thing picked up today. Looks like it may have been a giftware addition to the
"Marguerita" range of tableware (1950s), as there are elements of it, but the
underside is in the 1970s "Rochester" glaze.

An unusual 8 x 6 small tray picked up today. "Poplar trees along a road"?
No signature, but "Glynware/Cheviot" elements, maybe just a one off.

Another odd bit picked up today. A Deco vase 8.5 in high, never seen this style before.
With those wavy handles and "GRETNA" green, I would attribute it to Alice Teichtner, 1930s,
unmarked.

A rare pair of unmarked "Silver grey" candlesticks, NIB, deigned by Alice Teichtner 1931.
Influenced by, and often mistaken for, the stonewares of her native Germany.

An unusual 5 inch jug, unmarked, so probably a trial. Definitely some Glyn influence,
so probably 1950s.

Obviously from the same series as Lindylou's dishes shown on this page, which I hadn't noticed.

Much of the "New Glynware" range was produced at the Langley Mill pottery using white clay, but these are Denby stoneware.

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.
