The Burmantofts Pottery came into existence almost by accident - the site purchased by the original founders contained coal, which they mined, but they later discovered clay there and began to make bricks and pipes.

The pottery's output gradually evolved to include a range of decorative architectural faience, including Burmantofts' easily recognisable jardinieres, and also came to include art pottery. Burmantofts' art pottery and architectural faience were well-received, and although art pottery production ceased in 1904, production of architectural wares continued until the 1950s, under the name Leeds Fireclay Company.
