Large stoneware bowl, 32cm diameter, 8cm tall.

The only mark is a stamped Made in England, which makes it look like factory output. That mark kind of feels as if it should have a Denby stamp to go with it. The clay looks right for Denby. There are a number of production faults on the bowl so it may have been a second and not got a factory mark.

Having said all that, I haven't been able to track anything down like it on internet searches.

I know there are some knowledgable Denby folk on here so maybe someone could help with confirmation and / or further information, or alternative suggestions.

Denby "Tibet ware" 1930s. Never marked Denby.
The colours look a bit off, so it could well be a second.

Check the Denby thread for other examples.

Maybe it was a trial piece that never went into production. The shape looks a little unusual for Denby. So maybe the making or glaze costs did not make it economic? The printed mark is a 1930 onwards one up to a little after WW2.

Thank you both, nice to know my instincts were correct for a change! The colours, particularly the blues, look a little paler to the eye in natural light, and as stated there are a several faults in both the glaze and structure.

There are some "metallic" or iiridescant highlights on each panel that may not be obvious on the previous pictures.Large Stoneware Bowl - Denby "Tibet ware" Img20112
