Minton Repair and Restoration
In 1796, the Minton Company started what would turn into a pottery and porcelain company that has experience more than 200 years of success. Thomas Minton established the company in Stoke-Upon-Trent in Staffordshire and began producing earthenware. After a partnership with Joseph Poulson, Minton’s expanded into china pottery. After Thomas Minton’s death, his son Herbert took over the company and started producing decorative encaustic tiles. The company changed names to Minton Hollins & Co., and they supplied decorative finishes to floors and walls for prestigious clients including the United States Capitol.
Minton often led the way in bringing fashions to ceramics. They were one of the first companies to produce Parian, a fine, white porcelain. Due to this, the Minton style changed significantly throughout the years. Early Minton tableware featured a blue transfer print or painted earthenware, but the most popular Minton collectibles include a cream-colored and blueprinted earthenware, majolica, Minton bone china and Parian porcelain.
The Minton mark has changed significantly over the years. The first Minton mark dates back to around 1805. From 1842-1942, the year was noted by a distinct cypher. Since 1863, the mark featured a globe with the word “Mintons or “Minton” in the central band. A crown was added to the mark in 1873 and sits atop the globe.
