A classic design produced by Minton’s Ltd. of English heritage. This collection has been in existence since 1982 and was manufactured for more than a decade (13 years to be exact, from 1982 to 1995.) Because of its gold band, this dinnerware is not safe for use in the microwave oven.
Minton’s Ltd. was founded in 1793 by Thomas Minton. With England as its headquarters, its key products are earthenware and bone china. The company merged with Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd. in 1968. Royal Doulton was then taken over by the Waterford Wedgwood group of Ireland in January 2005. As of July 2, 2015, the entire group has been acquired by the Finnish company Fiskars Corporation.
Our favorite is the wide-rimmed footed cream soup bowl – you can ladle as much as you want!
