Description

1796-1968
Founded in 1796 by Thomas Minton, Mintons first focused on producing practical tableware, often with prints like the kitten print on the plate below, found at the Charnley-Persky House. After Thomas’s son, Herbert, took control of the company in 1836, Mintons began to branch out into a variety of patterns and styles, introducing Majolica in 1851, as advertised in the 1879 image below. Mintons Ltd. was absorbed by Doulton Fine China Ltd. in 1968.
