Denby Burlington Design – Albert Colledge 1958

“Burlington” was design by Denby Icon, Albert Colledge in 1958-59 when Albert was 68 years of age and had worked at Denby for 55 years.

It was very contemporary design then, and I think it looks just as contemporary now. (Colledge is the correct spelling for Albert’s  surname, often misspelt)

Originally the design was glazed in a satin matt black and decorated with white, vertical broken lines. Soon after there was the turquoise blue variation. There is also a multi coloured pastel decor as seen in the planters below, and also an all green decor. The forms are made of stoneware and very long lasting – as is all Denby pottery.

The forms in this series have such beautiful lines and proportions – and consisted of a variety of vessels including vases, bowls, planters, lidded jugs, coffee pots, coffee mugs and cruets.

This is an unusual form for a coffee pot, and I think it looks better without the lid – which sits quite loosely – and is more appropriate today as a water jug probably..
