Minton’s Ancestral Pattern Vintage Enameled Porcelain Dinnerware was a highly popular design which was produced by the company for 40 years, from 1951 to 1991. The popularity and longevity of this Minton Ancestral Pattern Vintage Enameled Porcelain Dinnerware were due to its elegant floral motif and graceful fluted rim design. Set against a white background, Minton’s Ancestral Pattern Vintage Enameled Porcelain Dinnerware featured a floral transfer pattern of light brown, enhanced with enameled flowers in jewel tones of turquoise and ruby red. This stunning color palette lent itself to both traditional and contemporary environments, and accommodated a broad range of linens and crystal in many tones from the color wheel.

BRIEF HISTORY: Thomas Minton spent years as an apprentice with Josiah Spode, Josiah Wedgwood and other prominent potteries before he opened his own porcelain factory in 1793 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Initially, Minton decorated earthenware blanks with blue transfer designs which he sold to London retailers. However, in 1798, Minton expanded into the production of porcelain products, producing creamware and transferware, in addition to stoneware, and hand-painted earthenware designs. When Minton died in 1836, he left his factory to his son, Herbert Minton, whose artistry and business acumen pushed Minton China to the forefront of the industrial age.
