Bretby Art Pottery, more properly known as Tooth & Co. Ltd., was founded in 1883 by Henry Tooth and William Ault in Woodville, Derbyshire. The company had sufficient impetus to survive the departure of Ault, who set up his own pottery at Swadlincote in 1887.

The company produced both inexpensive pressed wares and the more expensive art pottery. Bretby stayed in the hands of the Tooth family until 1933, and after the second World War became known as Tooth and Company Limited Bretby Art Pottery.

Bretby products almost always bear the impressed sunburst motif and the word ‘BRETBY’. From 1891 the word ‘ENGLAND’ is added and after 1900 ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’. Henry Tooth’s monogram was in use up to about 1900.
