One of the most iconic names in the history of English pottery, Minton porcelain and china pieces are highly collectable and desirable to have in your home.
Minton was founded in 1793 by Thomas Minton in Stoke-on-Trent and from 1820 it became famous for its production of bone china, which was affordable for ordinary people. The company has continued producing china and porcelain into the 21st Century.
With an array of eye-catching patterns and designs to choose from, a pretty Minton dinner set, a decorative jug, or a stylish tea set, is sure to grab attention.
Make your choice of Minton porcelain and china by deciding what you need, whether it's a plate, mug, bowl, or figurine and the style and era you prefer.
In the 19th century, Minton was responsible for popularising Majolica, which stands out for its beautiful glaze and bright colors. Among Minton majolica, you can expect to find plates and jugs decorated with illustrations of plants and animals, eye-catching figurines of animals and Renaissance characters.
Among the most popular lines of 20th century was Haddon Hall, which first appeared in 1949 and remains popular and widely available today. This collection is based upon the floral tapestry found on the walls of Haddon Hall in Derbyshire. Keep an eye out for dinner sets, mugs, teapots and fruit bowls decorated in the pretty floral prints of Haddon Hall, which will look perfect on the smartest of dinner tables.
Minton from the late 19th and early 20th century is typical of the Art Nouveau era, featuring highly decorative ornaments and tableware painted with illustrations influenced by the natural world, such as flowers, animals and people. If you prefer Art Deco look out for china and porcelain decorated in the geometric shapes and stripes of the era.
As one of the most enduring and highly collectable names in British pottery history, you are sure to find that perfect piece of Minton to add to your collection or give as a gift.
