The Dictionary of Minton
This volume is the first complete history of the famous Minton company, its wares, artists and decorators, and is destined to become the standard work of reference for collectors and dealers. The authors chart the triumphs, the solid achievements, the successes and failures of this outstanding company which employed some of the most famous names in nineteenth century ceramics history, including the two French giants, Arnoux and Solon, and rose to heights of international eminence unknown by any other ceramics manufacturer once Wedgwood.
Extensive researches into the Minton Archives have provided fascinating insights into the personalities concerned with the running of the business. The considerable biographical material has been used in the section devoted to the artists and their work; a separate section covers the vast range of wares made at Minton over 190 years of production.
