BrentleighWare is a trade name used by Howard Pottery Co. Ltd. in Stoke-on-Trent, #Staffordshire, England. The #pottery was in business from 1925 to the mid-1970s.

The business was owned by Earnest William (Bill) Bailey, and his half-brother, Douglas K Bailey was the managing director until at least 1960.
According to Ernest granddaughter the trade name 'Brentleigh Ware' was named after Earnest's daughter Brenda and the Howard Pottery was named after his son Geoffrey Howard.

The company initially made decorative ware, bowls, vases, dinnerware, and figurines often making use of the once fired process to reduce costs. During the Second Word War this changed to utilitarian – cups and saucers for the army and high insulation ware for electricity conductors.
