Danesby Ware Mark

Q: I found a lovely old vase with Danesby Ware marked on the bottom. What can you tell me about it?

A: Danesby Ware was made by Joseph Bourne & Son Ltd. of Denby, Derbyshire, England. Bourne began making salt-glazed pottery at Denby in 1809 and is still in business. At first the company operated under Bourne's name, but it is now known as The Denby Pottery Company. In the 1920s Denby began making decorative and giftware lines they called Danesby Ware.
