Derbyshire-based Denby Pottery has just been voted the ‘Tabletop Supplier of the Year’ for the second year running.
The award, given by retail organisation AIS, is based on feedback from tableware retailers and takes into account the support and service provided them by Denby over the last year. The pottery has also recently won an award for its visitor centre, which incorporates an exhibition of older Denby wares and a large retail section.
The Denby Homestore and Cookery Emporium was judged the Best Independent Housewares Store in the UK at the International Home and Housewares Show in the USA. The Denby Pottery Visitor Centre is popular with locals and visitors to the area – offering a combination of new Denby pottery for sale, an excellent cafe and an interesting museum of early Denby wares.
It’s well worthwhile if you are in the area and it’s good to see one of the few remaining wholly-British potteries having some success.
