Bosses at Denby Pottery have expressed their delight after Prime Minister David Cameron decided to present one of its products to German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Mr Cameron and his family visited Mrs Merkel at Schloss Meseberg, the rural retreat that is used by German Chancellors to entertain foreign world leaders.
During his stay, Mr Cameron presented her with a ‘Halo’ tea set made by Denby Pottery.
Managing director Garry Biggs said: “We are delighted that the Prime Minister chose a set of Denby to be his gift to Mrs Merkel.
“We hope this gift helps support our export drive in Germany and the German Chancellor enjoys using her tea set for years to come.”
