Thomas Minton and his family began production on earthenware and bone china in the late eighteenth century and production of fine tableware continues until this day under the Minton brand. The Minton pottery factory was built in the English china capital of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England and was in existence until it's demolition in the late twentieth century.
Among the highlights of Minton's long and rich history include it's association with leading designers such as Augustus Pugin, Michael Hollins, Hiram Powers, Leon Arnoux and as the rumours have it, Price Albert (husband of Queen Victoria). At one time it also produced decorative tiles which were used in the tile flooring of the U.S. Capitol and some of it's exhibition displays are held at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. The Victorian Building used to make Minton's tiles has been listed and preserved as a building of historical significance.
In the mid-twentieth century, Minton merged with Royal Doulton China and later became part of the WWRD group along with Wedgwood and Waterford.
