Far north of Scotland Keith.

But I think Carolyn's probably right, certainly about much of the more interesting stuff. The pre WW1 stuff (when there was a decent size home market) has already reached the UK secondary market once, maybe twice and is safely tucked away in people's "treasure cabinets". The same is probably true of the during and post WW1 stuff but much of that production will have gone for export anyway to fund or replenish the war coffers. And then we had another war to fund and virtually all luxury production went for export again.

Read Bill Bryson's Thunderbolt Kid to discover just how little we had growing up in post-war Britain compared to the US.

Just spotted this jug on eBay, with original 'Denart' label:

Auction

The finish is the same as the pieces above, and the label reads 'Guaranteed British Decorated - Denart - Permanent Fired Colours'. This would certainly indicated that the glass was produced elsewhere and decorated in the UK.

Any chance of finding out more about Denart?

As others have observed, little info. Denart is not a currently registered TM. No  UK company registered solely Denart or Denart Ltd.

Two people who may be able to assist further:

Glass Association member, Dr Graham McLaren, at Bath School of Art and Design, who has written a treatise on transfer screenprinting and implementation of the technology, at Capper Ratauds Ltd,

and Shane P. O'Toole, a former litho printer at Capper Ratauds.... His contact details/info can be found using a search of name and Capper Ratauds ( employed there 1976-1988).

It is possible one or other may have knowledge of Denart. If not, K.H. Bailey and Sons Ltd, another significant manufacturer of transfers to glass and ceramics industries, are still in existence at their Dunning Street, Tunstall, S-o-T offices, and it may be that they have knowledge of Denart.

Denart was a trademark of Crystalart Ltd. Crown Works, Mill Street, Stoke-on-Trent and distributed in the UK by Percy Hancock & Son Ltd

There were several transfer makers active in the 1950s and some glassworks also produced their own transfers as the demand in the 50s was greater than the supply creating a huge backlog of wares to be decorated.

Pirelli also decorated in the same style as the subject of this thread although do not appear to have sold these shapes. But so did several others.
