Each piece is marked Mintons Haddon Hall Made in England B-1451. It does not appear any have ever been used!Minton Bone China - Founded 1793 Stafforshire, England by Thomas Minton. This company became one of the most prestigious names in bone china history. Why?Thomas Minton was a Caughley (see Coalport) engraver attributed with the creation of the Broseley Blue Dragon and Willow patterns for Josiah Spode that are still in use today.A talented and visionary individual, his company became so successful it went on to become Spode's nearest rival. Minton bone china is an essential part if any antique china collection. For me, Minton is a product of a perfectionist mind-set.The best known Minton bone china pattern is Haddon Hall. Designed by John Wadsworth, this pattern is particularly favoured by the Japanese market.
Haddon Hall was designed in 1949, but was but the latest in a long line of triumphant product developments driven first by Thomas and then by his son Herbert Minton who took over the running in 1836.
This early determination to portray great design in their products from Minton bone china onwards, seemed to groove the company into an endless culture of excellence - nothing less was fit for Mintons.
Colin Minton (Campbell) was the nephew who carried on the tradition and it was he who commissioned the likes of Christopher Dresser to make Minton's mark in that era. I have seen a Minton pseudo-cloisonne urn by Dresser sell for $8,500USD (2006 in Columbia, SC). The estimate was $3000 - $5000.
