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:

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.

The latest addition to the Perfect Pieces Denby Pottery section is this super large Denby pottery ware shallow bowl:

This dish is from the Denby Glynbourne range that the pottery produced from around the 1960’s. It is a very large and heavy bowl perfect for display or for holding your fruit! It has the Denby printed pottery mark on its base which dates this particular Glynbourne piece to c1975-1985.

Decorated in tones of green, brown and blue with an abstract floral decoration it certainly is a statement piece.
