British, 1793. Minton is a porcelain company founded in 1793 by Thomas Minton. It has gained international acclaim as one of the leading porcelain makers. The porcelain factory was located in Stoke-upon-Trent, England. Thomas Minton was a professional artist, and carver who was interested in creating high-quality porcelain. After Thomas passed away, his son Herbert Minton became in-charge of the company. Their porcelain pieces feature willow pattern, encaustic tiles, Parian statuary, and Majolica ware, which became widely popular. Designs such as Bellemeade, and Haddon Hall are some of Minton’s prominent china patterns.
The Haddon Hall pattern was particularly coveted by the Japanese porcelain industry. In addition, Minton’s acid-etched gilding design was known for its complex and highly detailed golden patterns. Their porcelain technique known as pâte-sur-pâte was also employed by Minton in the 19th century. Pâte-sur-pâte is a process of glazing after painting the decoration in white clay slip. The brand manufactured pieces like bone china, earthenware maiolica, and Parian porcelain. Famous artisans and artists like John Wadsworth, Kenneth Wright, and Douglas Henson have created porcelain pieces for the brand.
