Minton & Co.

To this day, Minton & Co. are considered one of the major pottery and porcelain manufacturers of British history. Established in 1793, the company was founded by Thomas Minton (1765 – 1836) in Stoke-on-Trent. Until 1845, the pottery manufacturers traded under various styles before adopting the ‘Minton’ name. When Thomas Minton died, the business passed to his son, Herbert (1793 – 1858) who expanded business by entering into partnership with Michael Hollins. The ‘Minton & Co.’ name was dedicated to encaustic and inlaid tiles while the ‘Minton, Hollins & Co.’ partnership was for printed, painted or majolica wall tiles. Minton exhibited at trade exhibitions across the globe, establishing a firm reputation for excellence in pottery and earthenware.
