Derbyshire – Potteries & Great Houses

Derbyshire is full of many wonderful sites and collectables! If you live in Derbyshire and are looking for something a little different either for a gift or for yourself then why not consider a piece of Denby Pottery?

Back in the early 1800’s local potter William Bourne took a lease on a piece of land near to where the discovery had been made of a seam of fine quality clay along the route of the nascent Derby – Alfreton Road. He already had a pottery near Belper, but soon set up on his new site where the reputation for producing good quality wares was soon established, and the rest was history!

Here are a few examples of some Denby Pottery items from the 1950’s and 1970’s:

Despite the turbulent financial times we’ve experienced over the past few years the Denby Pottery is still going strong producing good quality decorative and table ware. Click Here – To view our Denby Pottery For Sale

Another great site in Derbyshire is of course Chatsworth. This is a stunning historic house set in the centre of the Peak District. It is steeped in history with beautiful gardens. In the run up to  Christmas the lower part of the house is decked out with festive displays and in November there are Christmas Markets with more than 100 stalls complementing Chatsworth’s own range of food and gift shops.

Denby Glyn Ware Bowl

This Denby bowl is from the Denby Pottery Glyn Ware range and features an abstract plant and leaf design that has been picked out in striking colours of aqua and turquoise – quite unusual.  An additional feature is that the outside of the bowl has also been decorated, something that is often missed resulting in plain sides when viewing the bowl side on. The sides of this bowl have been decorated in green with an interwoven purple pattern running around the edge of the bowl.

This attractive Denby bowl also has the hand-painted Glyn Colledge pottery mark on its base.

£30m Denby Buyout Marks New Era for Derbyshire Firm

Denby Pottery has been sold for £30m in a management buyout, it was announced yesterday.

When I reported on January 20th that Denby Pottery was planning to make some of its employees redundant, I didn’t realise how bad things were.

According to a further article today on thisisderbyshire.co.uk, the company had £72m of debt, more than half of which has been written off as part of the buyout deal, led by current Denby Managing Director Garry Biggs and backed by private equity firm Valco Capital.

According to the report, Denby claims to have been operating successfully in recent years but struggling to “service its debt burden”.

Denby Joins List of Troubled British Potteries

Denby Pottery will be celebrating its bicentenary this year. Unforunately, it will also be cutting jobs.

The exact number of jobs due to disappear from the Derby Road, Denby factory is not yet clear. The company, which employs 400 people, is currently negotiating the cuts with its workers’ unions.

Denby – like so many companies – has been hit by the economic downturn and is experiencing drastically reduced demand for its tablewares, known worldwide for their good quality, colourful designs and robust stoneware manufacture.

By reducing its headcount and factory output, Denby hopes to be able to ride out the economic storm and survive. The company has already confirmed that its bicentenary celebrations will be toned down to suit the economic mood, although it has said it will still mark the occasion.
