Minton Pottery facts:
- Mintons was an independent business from 1793 to 1968 and was considered a leader in ceramic design. Early Mintons work was domestic tableware, including the Willow pattern, but it is Victorian majolica, Parian ware, Henry II ware, encaustic tiles and pâte-sur-pâte that the pottery is best known for.
- Léon Arnoux was an art director from 1849 and stayed with the Minton Company until 1892. He was responsible for formulating the tin-glaze used for Minton’s rare tin-glazed Majolica.
- Parian ware was introduced in the 1840s and by 1852 the firm offered 226 figures in its catalogue. Arnoux also reintroduced "Henri II ware" - high-quality lead-glazed earthenware. There are very few surviving pieces and they attract high prices at auction.
