Folio Friday – November

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/MS1841

[Class letter U]. Folio number 19. “Studio Reduced Copies”: tiles, fire-surrounds, panels, etc; designs, tracings, drawings, paintings, etc; mostly coloured. 118 items

Keen-eyed followers of our Folio Friday series might feel they’ve seen these cheeky little squirrels before, and you have… at least in part! Back in October 2018 we highlighted an artwork from SD 1705/MS1861 which matches the top slab of this fireplace design, albeit in much higher detail than in this miniaturised version.
