About Bretby

Bretby pottery was established in Derbyshire in 1882 and featured the work of Henry Tooth, a celebrated ceramic designer and skilled potter. The company is known for the bold use of colours and its rustic style. The company made vases, planets and jardinieres, bowls, statues, models and some dinnerware. Early pieces Tooth had experience of working for another pottery company and brought this to the Bretby factory. However, first pieces were not such high quality as perhaps he was hoping for. But nonetheless they were instrumental in developing the distinctive Bretby style which became renowned for its rich colours and glazes including fiery amber, rich green and deep blood red known as sang-de-bÅ?uf (French for oxblood). Some early examples have raised decorations in simple shapes like nuts. Further development The company continued to favour its jewel tones and monochrome colours in decorating its pieces, but increasingly featured raised decorations on them like leaves, animals and birds. Bretby also experimented in imitating the texture of other materials using ceramics. Some examples replicated hammered metals, some woods. Bamboo was also imitated in eastern-inspired vases for example. Bretby Jewel Ware features intensely coloured jewel-like cabochons or plaques fixed to the body of the ceramic object. This style was only produced until 1920. Desirable and collectable The unique style of Bretby pottery makes it very collectable in today's antiques market. Some lines, Jewel Ware in particular, are rare because of their relatively short periods of production. The monochrome look of early pieces is also appealing to contemporary tastes in interiors whilst being even more valuable given its age.
