Denby Monsoon Chrysanthemum - The chrysanthemum flower has a long history, and although it was traditionally a golden flower, it has been cultivated to grow in a spectrum of hues. The flower is daisy-like in appearance and is the birth flower for the month of November. It represents the 13th wedding anniversary, and it plays a significant part in Japanese culture and symbolism, where it represents the sun.
Confucius said that the petals of the chrysanthemum should be used for meditation and that their opening represented perfection. Derbyshire pottery, Denby, produces am attractive selection of plates, bowls, and other items of dinnerware that are adorned with images of the flower. The dark design of the flower looks bold against the crisp, white porcelain of the dinnerware items.
Taking from 200 years’ experience of working with local Derbyshire clay, Denby has created a fine range of fine China; tough and durable, while being functional as well as attractive and stylish. The company has put its two centuries of experience producing beautiful glazes to make this stunning design, and at ECookShop we carry a large selection of dinner items from this well known manufacturer. ECookShop is the official kitchenware website of Dawson’s Department Store. You can call in to the store, which is based in Clitheroe, where you can see all of these items and many more.

In 1806, local entrepreneur William Bourne, discovered a seam of high quality clay. By 1809, Bourne had tasked his son, Joseph, with the running of what would become known as Denby Pottery. Joseph had inherited his father’s entrepreneurial skills and he patented the company’s unique salt glazing technique. This technique helped give Denby pieces their unique finish, and their brown glazed bottles and jars became popular and extremely profitable.
Over time, Denby has extended to produce and create a whole range of dinnerware and kitchenware items. They have become well known for manufacturing quality porcelain and china. They have created items that last for years, and as well as manufacturing beautiful dinnerware, they are renowned for manufacturing pieces that can withstand the rigours of being used for every meal.
They have collaborated with a number of respected chefs, and the Monsoon line is just one of a number of popular ranges. The chrysanthemum design is bold and beautiful, and most of the pieces can be used in the microwave, dishwasher, and even in the freezer.
The Benefits Of Denby China
Fine China is made from a combination of bone ash and other materials. It has a fine looking appearance and its quality is ultimately determined by the amount of bone ash that is found in the mix. It has an opaque appearance, but despite looking fine and even fragile, it can actually be more durable than porcelain, while being lighter. The white of bone china is often described as “snow white” because it has a softer tone.
Denby’s fine china is extremely durable and hardwearing. Their sets can last for many years and despite their fine appearance, Denby pieces made from fine china can even withstand use in the dishwasher.
Plates And Bowls
The mainstay of any dinner set ae the plates and bowls. Large dinner plates can be used to serve any meal, while smaller plates are used for serving dessert, side dishes, or for smaller snacks like salads. There is a broader range of bowls available in the modern kitchenware collection, though, with cereal bowls and pasta bowls, dipping bowls and more. The pastry plate is a 17cm plate, the dinner plate is a 28.5cm plate, which is slightly larger than a lot of the standard dinner plate sizes, and the salad plate is a 22cm plate. You can buy Chrysanthemum plates in their standard cream design, or in charcoal, which looks like a negative of the cream design with its charcoal background and snow white flowers. Available in the Monsoon range are dessert bowls, pasta bowls and soup or cereal bowls.
Cups And Denby Monsoon Chrysanthemum Mugs
The Espresso cup and saucer set contains two espresso cups and saucers. This makes a great looking and functional gift idea that won’t break the bank. The striking design makes a memorable statement, and the quality of Denby means that the recipient will be able to use their gift for years to come. Alternatively, there are large mugs and can mugs. There are tea cups and saucers, and there’s even a beautiful teapot and sugar bowl all available in the same great looking finish.
Cups and mugs are ideal for hot drinks, but if you prefer something colder with your tea, then the set of two Denby Monsoon Chrysanthemum red wine glasses may be more your style. These 475ml capacity wine glasses are as striking as the rest of the set, with the dark glass and clear rim combination.
While many of the Monsoon products can be used in the dishwasher, you should avoid placing the wine glasses in the dishwasher in case they break.
