Denby Pottery Co plans to introduce four new serving pieces is some of its most popular patterns as a result of consumer demand for more versatile serving pieces. The new pieces are a small oval dish, a pasta/salad bowl, a divided dish and an oval casserole. They will range in price from $25 to $100 and will be featured at the International Housewares Show in Jan 1995.

The Denby Pottery Co. aims at increasing its presence in the U.S. market with new products and display systems. The latest developments can be seen at the International Housewares Show in January.
“We have expanded our line to include more pieces and a wider variety,” said Stephanie Ritter, Denby’s marketing manager.
Denby has introduced four new serving pieces in some of its best-selling tableware patterns– a small oval dish, an oval casserole, a pasta/salad bowl and a divided dish.
The new items evolved as a result of consumer demand for more serving pieces that were versatile and flexible in use. For example, the small oval dish can be used as either a cooking dish or as a serving dish.
These four new items are available in the Greenwich, Baroque, Marrakesh, Regatta, Imperial Blue, Regency Green, Colonial Blue, Harlequin and Spice patterns. Depending on the pattern, suggested retail prices for the small oval dish range from $25 to $28, $92 to $105 for the oval casserole, $55 to $68 for the pasta/salad bowl, and $45 for the divided dish.
Denby has created a cookware starter set, in Harlequin and Spice. It includes two oval dishes, an oblong dish, a 3-pint casserole and a deep round dish. It will retail at $156 for the set.
Denby’s range of mugs continues to grow with glazes and matte finishes. “We are looking to develop a larger mug business in the U.S.,” said Ritter.
