Like the authors, I got interested in Denby from their modern wares, however this book is a good introduction to the history of the pottery going back to it's founding in 1809 (though Denby themselves claim it is 1806, but celebrated the centennary in 1909).
If you are looking for a book that will tell you exactly what range you have sitting on your shelves, this may not be the one for you, as although the different styles/ranges are briefly described, not all of them are shown in illustrations. What illustrations are included are very well reproduced (many in colour) and also give the size of the largest piece in each case so that you can get an idea of the size of each item. Not surprisingly, there are more illustrations of recent designs, though there are many reproductions of old catalogue pages showing sketches of designs from the past.
For the price the book is excellent, and the coverage of the past history of the pottery is covered in detail (the actual name of the pottery has only been Denby in recent history) and I can thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars fascinating, informative, illustrative, valuable 11 Dec 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
this book is a goldmine for anyone interested in the history of denby pottery.

it contains a well researched written history from its foundations under the bournes of denby and there are many, many pictures to illustrate this: diagrams, adverts, archive photos, silhouettes, displays and portraits.

i was and continue to be fascinated by the entire book. and i have even learned that my denby collection, which i had thought was complete, is actually missing a piece!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Denby Collectors... 27 Feb 2006
I found this book an excellent resource. It provided a really interesting history on Denby, not only on the different styles, but also the different designers and the changes in patterns, shapes and colours over the years.
I thought the pictures were excellent. Firstly there were many colour pictures of many different pieces and ranges, then there were illustrations and pictures for the base stamps and there were also scans of catalogues which showed the different shapes for different Denby ranges.
My mum collects Denby and found this book invaluable in dating some of her pieces, as well as informing her as to what style/range the Denby pieces she had belonged to.
If you are looking at, or if you already collect Denby, I think this book is really informative. It may not cover all pieces but it provides the most in-depth information and background on Denby that I have seen to date. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Denby Pottery 1809-1997 26 Sep 2000
By Sheila Cade - Published on
If you collect Denby this book is a must. It features everything you want to know from the start of the company. Can't place a name on that 'odd piece of Denby'. This book will certainly help. Very interesting and informative.
