Folio Friday – May

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; since February we’ve also been including a special bonus gallery of frivolous folio highlights from Twitter to share with you as well…

SD 1705/MS1728

[Class letter G]. No folio number. Majolica vases and plates: designs by Alfred Stevens. (Stevens, A.) [1850-60]; 10 items

This month we have a bumper Folio Frivolity gallery to share, it being the first instance when “fornightly-ish” actually means “three weeks” (though we shan’t complain about a gallery even more fit-to-bursting with artwork details than usual!). As always you can find out more about the origins of this series in our first bit of frivolity or scroll down to see the latest highlights from our @MintonArchive tweet-a-thon in gallery form. Enjoy!
