Denby Danesby Ware (England)

Post by tonyt40 on May 13th 2012, 6:56 pm

Hi

I hope you can help me. I have been given this piece of pottery but don't seem to be able to find out much about it or anything like it. It is marked Bourn Denby. I would be grateful for any info you may have.

Thanks

Happy Welcome Tony

I'm going to move this to ID my pottery, so it gets more attention.

Bourne Denby is the early name for Denby Pottery, which still exists today. The parent company Denby Holdings now owns Poole Pottery as well, also Burleigh.

Joseph Bourne & Son Ltd was founded in 1809 and made Denby Ware in Bourne's Pottery, Denby, Derbyshire. All Denby pottery is stoneware.

Danesby Ware is the general name for their 1930's Giftware. Pieces in this particular glaze are known as Orient Ware.

I was hoping to find out if it was part of a particular range, if it had a name or description so i could do more research. And if anyone happens to know the value?

thanks

Hi Tony I think Gareth has told you more or less everything. The range was called "Orient Ware" and, as Gareth said, that refers to the glaze. The shape would have been used with other glazes and the Orient Ware range included other decorative ware shapes of the time.

It was introduced in 1926 and 15 to 20 years ago there was a collector's market for this kind of thing. It was something that I would have sold at the time for 40 to 50. These days it isn't really collected and, as your piece isn't an uncommon shape or glaze, it is worth whatever you can get for it. Maybe half the amount above if you were lucky.

Sadly, that has happened to much of the pottery that was collected in the 1980s/1990s.

Thanks for your help. I had been looking on the web for ages and hadn't found anything in these colours this big! I'll put it back under the atars for now or maybe on the patio!

I forgot that it was that size so it is a little more unusual and would have sold for twice what I said in the 1990s and a little more than I suggested now.

I think that you a wise to keep it though and I have a couple of large Denby items put away with the hope that one day they might fetch what they did in the past.

Thanks for that. Good info. Shame about the fall in value but I'd be okay with the 30 mark as it isn't something that fits in with my personal collection.

3 more Denby Bourne to add to the thread - I was very temped by the squarish planter on the left, and the jug in the middle. The photo doesn't do justice to the blue glaze of the jug.



Base of the jug:

The large vase is/was a "Derwent" vase (large size). Pretty rare, and in a good colour.
They were used as stick-stands so are often damaged.

Flat bottomed vase - Bourne Denby

Post by NaomiM on February 9th 2015, 1:07 am

Cylindrical vase with flat base. I don't know if this is modern or vintage. To my eye it seems to have a similar clay and glaze colour to early Denby but it's unmarked.

Yes it looks right Naomi. They are usually marked with mark 14, "Bourne Denby England"
c 1905-1920.
Not uncommon, they usually seem to turn up in pink, purple or gun-metal black.
I'll see if I can dig one out to compare.

I have a large pink vase similar to yours, but just can't lay my hands on it ATM.
Meanwhile here are some other pieces from that era.

Bourne Denby bowl, 'Denby Grey'
The blue decoration round the sides was a bit messy so left it.

Silve-Grey, rare items C1931, always a bit crudely decorated.

Denby "Danesby Ware" was a generic name, used from c1920 through
into the mid 1930s, on most of the decorative ranges of that period.

If they were actually marked as such, usually along with a Bourne
Denby England mark, it can be found on:

Tube-lined wares (though usually completely unmarked)
Electric blue
Orient ware
Pastel wares
Meadow green
Florentine
Antique green
Silver-grey
Garden ware
Some of the larger animals (eg, rabbits and dogs)
