The Minton company catalogue contains two sets of pattern books – the “works” copies and the “office” copies. Together these books document the patterns created for affordable earthenware all the way through to highly decorative ornamental china pieces.

In our highlighted record search you’ll find digitised pages from the earliest bone china patterns in Pattern Book No.1, from the most richly decorated patterns of the “H” series, from the temporary “X” patterns of the 1940s and from the many others in-between.

The number of highlighted records in each of our themed searches will be growing over time, so check back to see what else we’ve uncovered from the Minton company records catalogue.
