Product Description And Additional Pictures

Minton’s popular Ancestral Pattern dinnerware was produced by the company for 40 years, from 1951 to 1991. The popularity and longevity of the Ancestral pattern was undoubtedly due to its elegant floral motif and graceful fluted rim design. Set against a white background, the Ancestral pattern features a floral transfer pattern of light brown, enhanced with enameled flowers in exquisite jewel tones of turquoise and ruby red. This stunning color palette is compatible with both traditional and contemporary decors, and with a broad range of linens and glassware in many tones.

We are pleased to be offering a pristine estate set of service for 12 in the Ancestral pattern. This set is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing or discoloration. We have priced it to sell at $1100.00, which is an excellent price: a popular china replacement site is currently offering a smaller, 45-piece Minton Ancestral starter set (service for 9) and the oval serving bowl for a total price of $1,018.95! Peruse our photos carefully – we think you will agree that our Minton Ancestral service for twelve (12) is perfect, lovely and a bargain!

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.

The shipping costs for this large set of dishes will be $100.00.
