Folio Friday – March

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!

We highlighted a few details from one of these panels in a previous Folio Friday instalment back in 2017 but our recent Pairing Up post about the vase for which these were created – which itself inspired a special Bicentenary piece – spurred us on to feature all four panels in super-hi-res for you to explore for yourselves.
