Vintage Retro Denby 'Arabesque' lidded bowl tureen.

Denby Arabesque is one of the more famous discontinued tableware patterns from the Denby Pottery.

It was designed by Gill Pemberton and was inspired by a trip to Russia. It's striking bold seventies design with yellow, brown and red circles on a dark brown background make it stand out from the crowd and provoke a 'marmite' reaction among many.

It was initially called "Samarkand", but the name was changed after the Portmeirion Pottery exhibited a design of the same name. It is indeed much loved by it's collectors, particularly so as there is such a vast variety of interesting pieces to collect.

Originally it was hand-painted with great variations in the depth and clarity of the pattern. Later more uniformity was introduced to the Arabesque design as production moved over to a decal or transfer style print.
