Thomas Minton established Thomas Minton and Sons in Stoke on Trent, UK, in 1793.

The company quickly became known for its basic tableware, before branching out into bone china and a range of highly decorative pieces, including vases.

Mintons merged with Royal Doulton in 1968 and the company continues to produce a small amount of bone china today.
