Minton China was founded in 1793 when Thomas Minton opened a small porcelain factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England, after years of apprenticeships with Josiah Spode, Josiah Wedgwood, and John Adams, and a stint working throughout England as an engraver. Originally, Minton China decorated earthenware blanks with blue transfer designs. These designs were popular at the time, and were sold in mass quantities to London retailers. In 1798, Thomas Minton began traveling around England in search of clay suitable for the production of fine porcelain. Once he found suitable clay, Minton began producing creamware, transferware, stoneware, and hand-painted earthenware designs. When Thomas Minton died in 1836, he left Minton China to his son, Herbert Minton, who proved to be an invaluable addition to the company. Herbert’s artistic vision, creativity, and business acumen led Minton China to the forefront of the industrial age.
