Butter dish


Vintage Denby Manor Green butter dish with cover

Well designed and extremely practical, Denby’s stoneware range in Manor Green was born in the 1930s; yet it wasn’t until the 1950s that the range was dramatically extended to include new pieces of mid-century design, such as this butter dish with cover. The rich glaze and striking simplicity make it as relevant today as it was then. Manor Green is no longer in production today, yet its classic lines and serene colour have stood the test of time, and it fits comfortably into the 21st century home.

Rare item

Butter dishes have proved to be much-loved and well-used items, and are therefore rare to find undamaged.  It is our store's policy to only offer these ceramics in near perfect condition, so we are apologise for often being out of stock.  Manor Green has proven to be Denby’s classic table china of choice and this vintage range is now much sought after.
