The Minton china factory was established at Stoke-on-Trent by Thomas Minton in 1798, and has continued to the present day. As the experimental days of porcelain production were past and the factory was fortunately spared any spectacular vicissitudes during its career, there is little history to chronicle. The best traditions of the day were followed in the making and decorating of the china and there is nothing particularly distinctive to be noted in that connexion. The decoration was always good and the pieces are plainly marked so that it is not difficult to identify them. The mark was an adaptation of the crossed L's of Sevres with an M between. Tableware has always been the chief product although decorative accessories also have played their part.
