Denby has a rich heritage producing handmade stoneware for over 200 years.

Every item of pottery is still expertly glazed by craftsman and the distinctive glazes are renowned for their practicality, durability and chip resistance.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's just a mug! This is a mug to put drinks in and has two ends usefully separated by a middle. I find that is a common feature of mugs. One of the ends is open to let the drinks in and the other is closed to stop them falling out. The middle is quite rotund and looks as if it could do with a few sessions at the gym. There is a handle to stop you burning your fingers when you pick it up - which is good. It is light coloured inside, so you can see if it has been cleaned after it was last used, and it is dark blue on the outside, because, er..... I think it is depressed and lonely. Overall, it does its job of being a mug quite well. it's only design fault is that it has the makers name underneath the base, which means that it's tricky to find out who made it when it is full of hot liquid. Perhaps therefore, a health and safety warning should be printed on the side, in a fluorescent yellow plaque reading: "This way up when full", together with a red hazard warning triangle. I already had one of these mugs, so now it is less lonely, but it is still dark blue. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely mug I love this mug, had one when I went to Uni but it got broke, been trying to remember where I bought it from and low and behold John Lewis came up with the goods. So I bought two this time, just in case! Thank you so much. Really prompt service too, I never knew I could ask for my John Lewis items to be delivered to my local Waitrose but it was there and really quickly and very well packaged. Thank you again. 21 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by favourite mug This is my mum's favourite mug so she asked for a second one for Christmas, which I then duly bought. It's probably my favourite mug too: lovely colour, weight, handle, shape and the lip is comfortable to drink from. We put ours in the dishwasher and microwave all the time, and the old one is still going strong. 18 January 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic mugs Lovely solid mugs, look nice & hold the right amount of tea / coffee. Denby classic. 29 December 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Design Classic I first purchased set of blue Denby Mugs fifteen years ago and purchased some more now to increase the set. Such is the quality and manufacturing consistency on these that it is almost impossible to tell the old and new mugs apart, despite the fact that half of them have years of constant use, and thousands of trips through the dishwasher more than the rest. These mugs are not lightweight and are extremely robust because of it. Despite this the elegant shape makes them equally at home on a dinner table as they are on a building site. The feel could be a little too heavy for some but because of the excellent handle design and shape of the body they can be easily held by the handle, or gripped in the whole hand for a comforting warmth. While not cheap to buy , the terrific quality and everyday functionality make these mugs a true bargain They will last a lifetime. Probably several lifetimes, as they get passed down the generations. 25 June 2011
