I'm puzzled and Google isn't helping to unpuzzle me.
Any ideas?

There are several marks on Denby pottery like this that are unidentified.
Maybe a special order for a retailer or wholesaler, or a government dept.
Still waiting to find out what BULU stands for on the rare pumpkin jugs.

How strange. You'd have thought there would be some sort of record somewhere.

Not heard of it, but It certainly fits.

Notice none of these items ever have an actual Denby pottery mark.

Re: the question of what BULU stands for, I believe it is Budde Lund. There are examples of the melon jug produced by Denby with the BULU mark underneath as well with BULU, Budde-Lund. A picture of an example is attached. BTHS mark on Denby Ode teapot -: anyone know what it means? Bulu_j10

Thanks Rob, we've been waiting decades to ID this mark! Never seen it before.
I wonder if it was a wholesaler or retailer?

If they were indeed made for export, it would explain why they are so rare.
