Folio Friday – December

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!

This artwork was subsequently featured in March 2019’s Folio Friday alongside three other panels in the same style, part of a short thread of blog posts concerning the vase for which they were created and the special Bicentenary production which was inspired by the original Victorian shape and artworks.
