Minton is a former British manufacture founded in 1793, independent until in 1968 and whose brand disappears in 2005. Under the Victorian era, Mintons Ltd supplied numerous international institutions. A first company was founded in 1793 by Thomas MINTON (1765-1836), quickly using the technique of decoration by transfer, a method close to the principle of the decal and passing by engraving. The first prestigious pieces produced by MINTON in the 1820s were in the Regency style; there are tea and coffee sets, bowls, salad bowls, and sophisticated trompe l'oeil dishes. In 1845, the company became Minton, Hollins & Company and developed the production of decorative wall and floor elements, supplying religious buildings, public buildings, large hotels, private houses. The firm participated in the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London.
