New from Denby for 2012
Denby’s new Heritage Collection is inspired by our rich 200 year old design archives.
Creating the feel of a modern country English home there are three tableware ranges with the kitchen at its heart, each drawing on Denby’s historic shapes, glaze and decorative techniques.
Handcrafted in Derbyshire, England, all three patterns have distinctive rustic speckle glazes featuring a golden rim on the edges and ridges of plates with the option of beautifully accented patterns on a small selection of pieces.
Boasting subtle elements from the archives such as elegant scrolled handles on mugs, and also jugs from the Coronation Mugs for HRH Queen Elizabeth II. The jug shape is inspired by our iconic 1920’s shapes.
The Heritage Collection - Pavilion:
Duck-egg blue with speckle and cream are the predominant colours of the range accented by a 1950’s graphic motif on four pieces. Click here to view Pavilion.
The Heritage Collection - Veranda:

The Kitchen Collection comprises Breakfast Plates, including a Rectangular Plate which can be used as a tray or for presentation, Egg Cup, Trivet, Toast Rack, Storage Jars and three Bowls. The Toast Rack stands alone or sits comfortably on the Rectangular Plate. There are also cute Salt and Pepper Pots in the shape of one of Denby’s iconic teapots which collectors will adore.

New from Denby for 2011
Denby’s new tableware for Spring 2011 is opulent and stylish, in rich chocolate shades with a heavily textured, speckled pattern finished in a smooth high gloss. ‘Praline’ follows the ‘rough-luxe’ trend in a way only Denby can. The trend (a little rough with a lot of luxury!) combines old and new, different colours and textures and is inspired by fashion and home trends.
Produced and decorated by hand in Derbyshire this range has been named after luxurious and indulgent chocolate. ‘Praline’s’ delicious chocolate shades are complemented on some mix and match pieces with a solid band of black called ‘Praline Noir’.
‘Praline’ is at home in a wide range of interior styles and can be dressed up or down to meet the needs of all dining occasions. ‘Praline’ also has the inherent strength of Denby and is safe for use in the dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer.

Beautifully crafted on fine, soft cream china the ‘Cosmic’ range includes 13 essential dining pieces for eating, drinking and serving. Stylish, practical and durable – ‘Cosmic’ can be used in the oven, dishwasher, microwave and freezer.

Epitomising all that is uniquely Denby, ‘Halo’ is a striking new tableware range being launched in Summer 2010. Designed and produced in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, ‘Halo’ tableware is the result of skills passed down through generations. Creating a sophisticated balance between contemporary design and traditional handcrafted pottery, ‘Halo’ has the ability to suit a wide range of interior styles.
Each piece is either dipped or painted by hand by skilled craftspeople to produce an effect unique only to Denby. The result is a textured graduated pattern which gently descends from black through to blue making each piece a work of art. ‘Halo’ also has the inherent strength of Denby making it safe for use in the dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer.
There are 21 pieces in the range for eating, drinking, serving and cooking which are available individually or there is a boxed 16 piece starter set. Examples of recommended retail prices are: £12.00 for a dinner plate and £10.50 for a large mug.

Denby Holdings Limited, the parent company of Denby Pottery, the well known UK ceramics and consumer goods manufacturer, today confirmed its rescue of Burgess, Dorling and Leigh Limited, the manufacturer of Burleigh pottery.
Established in 1851, Burleigh has been creating unique handcraft products for nearly 160 years. Every piece of Burleigh is still made in the authentic Victorian pottery, at Middleport in Stoke on Trent, using the original machinery and processes. Burleigh is one of the last potteries in the world to use the traditional and timeless skills of underglaze tissue printing which is a 200 year old English process. Their products are famous around the world for the signature blue and white floral designs strongly influenced by nature. Burleigh offers a wide collection of patterns and shades perfect to mix and match to create the signature Burleigh look and takes it far beyond a traditional tableware offering.
Burleigh’s Victorian model Pottery and Factory Shop is located in an attractive setting next to the Trent and Mersey canal in Stoke-on-Trent. The factory retains much of its original Victorian character, manufacturing methods and traditions, having converted from running on steam power just three years ago, and operates a popular Visitors Centre. Burleigh product is found in exclusive retailers such as Liberty, Fortnum and Mason and Harrods and its unique attributes have broad appeal. Historically the business has also manufactured product for premium American brands such as Ralph Lauren and Williams Sonoma.
The team at Denby are aiming to build on Burleigh’s unique brand proposition to bring this product to a wider audience and develop Burleigh as a niche British heritage brand alongside Denby, which celebrated its 200th anniversary last year following its own restructuring and refinancing by Valco Capital Partners, the private equity arm of Hilco UK.
Garry Biggs, Managing Director of Denby, commented “This is a good day for the British ceramics industry, which assures the long term future of a unique British pottery brand. We look forward to working together with the team at Burleigh, to build on Burleigh’s unique heritage and expanding its export business”.
Garry Biggs further commented that “all Burleigh products will continue to be manufactured at the Company’s 120, year old factory in Stoke, and we are actively recruiting to grow the business”.
The semi-precious stone, ‘Amethyst’ was the inspiration for this new gloriously deep and dramatic tableware pattern. The round curvy shapes of the range create a contemporary and sophisticated surface to present the glossy purple glaze to great effect.
For formal dining the range creates a welcoming table, rich in colour but for more informal dining there is an option to add the lively personality of ‘Amethyst Stone’ accent pieces. Plates and bowls are available in both designs to mix and match.
Denby’s love of food and drink is evident in the range with extra large gourmet pieces for impressive entertaining, an extra generous 6 cup teapot and both the teacup and mug fit into the tea saucer for flexibility.
Whilst ‘Amethyst’ tableware may resemble a jewel this is, of course, Denby with it’s inherent practical qualities and the range is safe for use in the dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer.
An elegant range of glassware complements the range including red and white wine glasses plus large and small tumblers.
Elegance with attitude - for those requiring ‘White’ tableware with real character!
The clean, simple lines of ‘Grace’ tableware are reminiscent of the ‘streamlining’ trends of the 1930’s following in the wake of the ‘Deco’ period. This sleek fine bone china delivers a unique modern range with an off symmetry effect on some of the key character pieces which is carried off with real poise.
The range includes 18 essential dining pieces including rimmed dinner plates, large and small mugs, gourmet plates and bowls with a unique lidded serving dish.
There is a range of glassware and textiles from ‘China by Denby’ to complement ‘Grace'.
‘Grace’ is suitable for use in the dishwasher, microwave and freezer.
Working in some of the World’s top restaurants James Martin knows how to impress with great food and stylish presentation. His expertise has helped to shape a truly unique range of dining and serving pieces.
Generously sized, not only does ‘Dine’ create a stylish blank canvass for all amateur chefs, the innovative pieces make even the simplest food look stunning.
Five new square place setting items (includes plates, bowls and mug) perfectly complement the existing range. Each piece features the signature pleat design.
Joining the range are also five new ‘Serve’ pieces (3 serving dishes, a divided dish and large platter). The ‘Serve’ pieces make eye catching individual centre pieces or they sit comfortably within the James Martin ‘Dine’ range.

Denby Pottery’s 200th anniversary of producing high quality pottery in the UK is being celebrated on 27th & 28th June 2009 with a big birthday party to be held at the Denby Visitor Centre.
Denby has a long and rich history and has evolved to meet the changing needs of society and for generations has been at the heart of the home. It was founded as a manufacturer of bottles and household goods (the Denby Hot Water Bottle kept feet warm throughout the Napoleonic Wars). It has also helped to sustain Britain through its first ‘dot.com’ revolution in the 1870’s (when telegraphic insulators were one of Denby’s biggest sellers), the Great Depression (when there was huge demand for Denby’s brightly coloured art ware) and World War II (“utility” brown teapots helped sustain the home front). Today Denby pottery remains the number one choice for the bride in the UK.
To mark Denby’s 200th birthday there are a series of new product launches and events throughout 2009. We are also holding a series of events at Denby’s stockists across the UK, Ireland and America. However, the highlight of the celebration will be held at Denby’s award winning Visitor Centre, which will host the Bicentenary Celebration Party during the weekend of 27th and 28th June commencing at 10 am on both days.
To mark Denby’s Bicentenary there will be an extra 20% off almost everything in Denby’s Factory Outlets across the UK and in the Home Store, Factory Shop, Garden, Gift and Emporia Shops at Denby Visitor Centre between 26th June and 2nd July.
Garry Biggs, Managing Director of Denby commented “this is a great celebration marking a major milestone in Denby’s long and varied history, and we look forward to having a celebration that will appeal to the local community, our work force, and to the many millions of people who own and cherish Denby in their homes”.
Paul McGowan, Chairman of Denby commented, “Denby has never stood still, and continues to thrive. We hope this event will encourage the many friends of Denby to go along to our Visitor Centre and Factory Outlet Stores throughout the country to experience Denby’s broad and varied range of products, from our much loved classic patterns through to our new contemporary designs”.
The Celebration Party at Denby will be held throughout the weekend, with Craftroom Tours where there is an opportunity to learn about Denby past and present with a special ‘kids go free’ (when accompanied by a paying adult) over the weekend. There will be many other attractions for all the family including a genuine Victorian Funfair featuring Helter Skelter, Carousel and Ferris Wheel rides (£1 per ride), live bands on Saturday, plus children’s entertainment with Pinxton Puppet shows, face painting and much more over both days.
For those with a competitive spirit, Denby will be holding a Baking Competition, (for which entries should be brought in by 10am on Saturday 27th for judging) There are three categories: the Bramley Apple Pie, which is also in its bicentenary year, Sponge Cakes and a Junior Competition for children under the age of 14.
Photographs chronicling Denby’s past will be on display and on Sunday Denby antique experts Graham and Alva Key will give Denby antiques/collectables valuations for a small fee for charity. Also on Sunday there will be a Gift Fayre with over 25 stalls selling quality handmade gifts.
And if all this leaves you with an appetite there will be a barbeque in the courtyard plus a Food Fayre featuring quality locally made foods on both days.
Entrance to the event is free for all the family.

A totally new contemporary tableware range both in terms of colour and shape welcomes in Denby’s bicentenary year. Designed in-house, as with all Denby ranges, ‘Pure Green’ is subtle in tone with curvy shapes, and judging by initial reactions to the range is set to become Denby's next generation of iconic style. Sophisticated enough for formal dining but bearing the practical qualities inherently Denby, 'Pure Green' will be just as suitable for more relaxed dining occasions. There are 19 pieces in the range including extra large gourmet plates and bowls for impressive entertaining. An extra generous teapot providing 6 welcoming cups of tea for family gatherings and for occasions when a normal teacup just isn't big enough, the small mug also fits the tea saucer! Suitable for use in the dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer, the suggested retail prices for ‘Pure Green’ are teacup £9.00, saucer £7.50, wide rimmed dinner plate £13.00.
Denby’s new bridal tableware pattern for Spring 2008 is ‘Mist’. In diffused muted blues and misty hues the range consists of 36 pieces including decorated pieces featuring a textural multi-layered stripe called ‘Mist Falls’.
All carefully designed and produced at Denby in Derbyshire, the range takes its inspiration from contemporary ‘neutral’ tones which are easy to live with and have long lasting appeal.
Each piece in the soft and ergonomically shaped Mist range has been developed with a real practicality and purpose in keeping with Denby’s ethos of ‘Love Food Love Denby’ to ensure they are ready to become part of life’s great food moments once they reach you.
Mist includes generous teapots, milk jugs designed to fit into fridge door and ingenious ‘buffet saucers’ which incorporate a clever well which fits the mug, cup, rice bowl and also a glass dessert bowl – a real conversation piece. Equally appealing for impressive entertaining or mid-week teatime, the range includes pieces for eating, drinking, cooking and serving.
Despite it’s soft and subtle palette, Mist and Mist Falls have the characteristic strengths of Denby - all pieces being oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.
To complement Mist and Mist Falls there is a matching range of handmade glassware by Denby comprising champagne flutes, white and red wine glasses, small and large tumblers and dessert bowl. Being Denby, of course, they are safe for use in the dishwasher.
To add the finishing touches to the table with confidence there are also napkins, table runners, wooden coasters and placemats.
Suggested retail prices start at £8.75 for an espresso cup.
The extensive appeal of China by Denby is about to widen even further with the launch of China Squares. Thoughtfully designed, China by Denby appeals not only to Brides and those who prefer both contemporary minimalist styles and the look of restaurant inspired dining, but also to those who prefer the qualities and feel of traditional fine china. The five new Squares pieces are: Dinner Plate, Dessert/Salad Plate, Tea Plate, Bowl and Tea Saucer all of which feature soft curved edges which perfectly complement the existing China by Denby range. Often favoured instead of traditional round plates, Square Plates particularly suit international food styles but retain the simplicity of china.
The elegance of all China by Denby belies its durability which, being Denby, has not been sacrificed – it’s safe for use in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer.
Denby’s new range of table accessories provides the perfect choice for dressing your table in style, with confidence, and without fuss. There is a range to co-ordinate with each of Denby’s tableware ranges but they also enhance any table setting. Each range includes Tablemats and Coasters in cork, wood or leather; Textile Napkins and Table Runners.
Denby carried out extensive research to ensure their accessories provided all the key ingredients for success! Denby table accessories are durable, won’t date and are easy care. Tablemats are large enough to hold place setting pieces but not overcrowd the table, offer a good degree of heat resistance and are ‘wipeable’. Napkins and Table Runners can cope with food spillages and are washable at 40oC and are easy to iron. All these qualities and interior design for your table too – it must be Denby!

Mist will be available from February.

Denby Pottery, the leading manufacturer of premium casual tableware which this year celebrates 200 years of manufacturing, has today confirmed the completion of the £30m sale of its UK and U.S. businesses to a management buyout team led by Garry Biggs, Managing Director.
In recent years, Denby has been trading successfully; however, like many businesses it has struggled to service its debt burden. The buyout, funded by Valco Capital Partners ("VCP"), will enable a substantial restructuring of the business' finances. Over half of the group's £72m debt is being written off as part of the transaction whilst VCP has also provided a working capital facility to the business.
Garry Biggs, Managing Director, said “We are delighted that we have been able to secure a future for The Denby Pottery Company in what are unprecedented times both for the tableware industry and the global economy. The Denby Board look forward to driving sustained growth and continued success in the future and to strengthening its pre-eminent branded position in its international markets.”
Garry Biggs, further commented, “with Denby’s financial position now secure, we are looking to make a number of quality strategic acquisitions in the sector”.
