The stoneware dinner sets are hard wearing and durable. Every piece has a unique look because of the combination of clay, stone and flint that makes the stoneware material. It is simple to produce and only goes through a single firing process. Because it only requires a single firing process, it means that colours tend to be warmer and pop more.
At ECookShop, we have a full range of Denby Pottery including the Denby Azure collection. We offer free delivery on all orders over £50, to any UK address, which means that you can benefit from even more competitive prices on high quality dinnerware and Denby items.
Established in 1809, Denby was founded by William Bourne and combined the strengths of local craftsmen with the quality of local Derbyshire clay. The Majolica glaze was introduced in the late 19th Century and the blue glaze, that is still available in a lot of modern Denby Pottery pieces, launched in the 1920s. In the 1930s, the range extended even further to incorporate lines like Epic and Cottage Blue. The Marmaduke rabbits were also launched at this time.
The 1940s saw a restriction on the materials that could be used; specifically, the company were left with just a brown glaze on all their products. The produced items like teapots, rum bottles for the navy, and insulators and battery jars to help with the war effort. During the 1950s and 1960s, the company became more design oriented, and rather than just producing functional items they launched a host of new designs. Further designs and improvements were made to the Denby dinnerware range.
The Azure Design
Denby tableware and dinnerware comes in a lot of styles and designs. Sets like the amethyst, azure, and caramel are named after the primary colours used in their design. Chrysanthemum and praline, Lucille gold and Lucille teal, as well as a host of different James Martin ranges are among the Denby dinnerware sets. Whether you are looking for an appealing set to keep in the display cabinet and take out for special occasions, or even if you want an everyday dining set, Denby has the products to match your needs.
At ECookShop we stock Denby Azure, Denby Azure Coast, and Denby Azure Shell dinnerware items. There are subtle differences between each of these sets but they use the same colour palette and have the same style and shape of items. They can be combined to create a unique set that is ideal for you and your family.
Functional For Everyday Use
A lot of the Made in England Denby stoneware lines include a 10 year guarantee. The guarantee covers standard use and wear and tear. It doesn't cover commercial use, and owners should follow the general use and care instructions to make sure that the items last as long as possible.
Most of the items have also been designed to be chip proof and durable. They are suitable for use in the microwave, oven, and the freezer. They can also be placed in the dishwasher, making them functional and convenient items of dinnerware and tableware.
The Benefits Of Stoneware Denby Dinnerware
Denby stoneware dining sets are made from vitrified clay. Vitrified stoneware is heated to very high temperatures, which offers a strong and durable clay. Different glazing levels have different levels of porosity. A single, small pinhole, can lead to leaks in dinnerware and mugs and other items. Denby has 200 years of experience in glazing and firing pottery, ensuring that it doesn't bloat or develop pinholes in the designs, and buyers of Denby Pottery dinnerware benefit from all of this experience with every single item that they buy.
Denby stoneware is hand crafted. This means that the design of each piece, even in the same range, can have subtle differences. This gives a set like the Denby Azure dinnerware set a truly unique appearance. No two pieces are ever exactly the same, and they look like high quality, handcrafted items.
Stunning As Gifts
The unique design, the extensive experience, and the well-known name means that all Denby Pottery makes a good gift idea. The beautiful and stunning design of Denby Azure pottery means that this is a great range of pottery and dinnerware to give as a Christmas gift, wedding gift, or house warming party.
