A fellow Denby collector suggested that while at Denby pottery, Diana was known as
Diana Woodcock-Beckering, and returning to the Denby book, there is just the one
entry for her as the designer of the "Trees" pattern, c1970.

Funny how little of it turns up, even round here. (BTW there is also a green version)
Maybe it wasn't a successful seller, but as a tableware range, I would have expected
to see more of it. Never seen a dinner plate or a cereal bowl even.

I once visited a Denby dealer who used it as her every day tableware,she told me it was made for 1 year only then production was stopped due to high manufacturing costs

Picked these two up at the same time. Jug approx. 4 3/4" high x 3 3/4" dia. ; Ladle approx. 12" long with 3 7/8" dia. "bowl". Presumably the ladle will have originally been with a tureen

I just found this info

Denby Pottery have produced a new ten-piece range of stoneware called Trees. Two sizes of plate (6in and 8in) together with a cereal or soup bowl form the basis of the set, which also includes a milk jug, tea pot and coffee pot, mug and saucer, and a sugar bowl. The shape was designed by Gill Pemberton and the decoration - black trees set against a spotted sky and candy striped hills - was by Diana Woodcock Beckering.

There is the standard purple Trees, and a Green Trees variation, maybe for export.
Very little turns up, even round here, ages since I have seen any at all.
Cosquently it can command some silly prices. The metal-handled tea pot (from Gill's
"Chevron" range), being a good example.

Diana Worthy, Crich Pottery (Derbyshire) - Page 2 Empty Unmarked Crich Pottery?

Post by RoyJ99 Wed 02 Nov 2016, 2:48 am

Found this dish or plaque today while out and about. When I first saw it my initial reaction was that it was Diana Worthy, Crich Pottery however it's unmarked and I've not seen anything other pieces of this form. It measures 19cm x 19cm roughly.

Not a shape or a colour combination I have seen before.
The green is odd, and it looks press-moulded, not thrown.
Crich is usually glazed underneath also, even the plates.

It probably is, but it may be a trial piece.

That's actually what I was thinking Denby, wondered if it was for testing glazes.
I should also add that I did have a couple of Crich mugs with a very similar colour scheme a while back, don't know if I have photos of them anywhere though.

It's basically the "rainbow" colourway, but with green.

Post by salsor Tue 28 Feb 2017, 6:16 am

I am trying it ID creator of this stoneware jug/pitcher. It is inscribed on bottom: "Made In England". Also inscribed with a simple cipher mark, possibly letters "CP" joined?
It is approx. 11cm tall.
