Teacup Tuesday – Denby & Johnson Bros.

My goodness the weeks are flying by and with the holidays fast approaching it seems like warp speed.  I’m running out of fine china teacups to show you, so this week my cup and saucer is Denby stoneware. 

PA122163My service for six of Denby stoneware is almost twenty five years old (1986).  It is in the Camelot pattern and was made in England.  These were my “everyday” dishes for many years.  I have mugs, as well as cups and saucers, but unfortunately I didn’t purchase the teapot.  The grey green color is better represented in the picture below.PA122165 I’ve always liked the shape of this Johnson Brothers “Fruit Basket Green” teapot and the green fruit and leaf pattern.

It was also made in England.

I LOVE your post and especially that Teapot! Johnson bros have some INCREDIBLE patterns don't they? I have a few BUT I've NEVER seen this beauty before. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE it! The shape resembles English Mason, Hmmmm... AND the color is also SO DIFFERENT... Again, I LOVE it, and thank you for sharing with us.

The teapot shape is very nice and I like the pattern on it too. Have not heard of Denby stoneware, but love the color.

You paired the teacup and teapot well, and the teapot will look lovely with delicate cups and saucers as well!

Congratulations on your win from Peregrine Blue, what a treasure trove of goodies!

oh, I adore that tea pot and if my youngest daughter saw those Denby dishes she would love them! Just her style. I love, love, love the colors on each of them

Your Denby teacup and saucer are wonderful. I have always loved Denby's style and shapes, as well as the fact that they are stone ware.
Your tea pot as well is just beautiful.
Thank you so much for sharing with us today.
Hugs,
Terri
