Folio Friday – August

Folio Friday is an opportunity for us to share some of the amazing artwork found within The Minton Archive’s folios with you. On the first Friday of every month we pick out a special piece of artwork from the Minton company catalogue’s Art & Design section and highlight it here on the blog. Enjoy!

SD 1705

The Minton Archive contains a small but important selection of artworks which, during the Archive’s working life, were removed from the Art & Design folio sequence and not returned. As we work to add representative images to each record in the online catalogue’s Art & Design section we’ll also be placing these designs back into the main folio sequence wherever possible. Any remaining illustrations will remain together in a new catalogue entry.

The stunning artwork below doesn’t have an MS number just yet – hence why we can’t quote the online catalogue entry as is the usual Folio Friday tradition – but we wanted to share it with you both as a wonderful Folio Friday instalment in its own right and as a useful example of the sort of work continuing behind the scenes too.

05/09/2019 Update: you can now find this artwork in SD 1705/MS1378.
