Minton Pictorial Tiles

Occasionally we run across an item that shines amongst all the dirt, dust and debris of being on site of an architectural salvage job. The item that shined the brightest on our latest salvage mission was a set of 19th century sepia-toned ceramic tiles. This set of pictorial tiles was installed as a fireplace surround in what once was the elegant keeping room in a majestic home.

The tiles were fabricated by Minton China Works, Stoke-on-Trent, in Staffordshire, England. This well known manufacturer was originated by Thomas Minton in 1793. Through the years the very successful company grew and expanded at the helm of several generations of Mintons. Thomas's son Herbert, who succeeded his father, not only developed new production techniques, but also enlisted the services of artists and skilled artisans which helped establish the company as the most famed and prolific manufacturer of ceramics and china for most of the Victorian Era. Minton tiles were used in countless prestigious buildings and homes.

The Minton tiles that we were able to salvage are simply stunning and are in great condition. Because this Minton set does not combine to create a larger scene, like most American tile sets, the tiles are perfect collector pieces. Each glazed tile is a work of art and can be purchased individually or the tiles can be purchased as a set. We currently have 20 tiles available priced for $95 each. You can view each individual tile by visiting our website at sa1969.com.

The Collection

Southern Accents Architectural Antiques

Each pictorial tile measures approximately 6" x 6". Create a beautiful work of art for your wall by matting and framing individual tiles or perhaps use three tiles together in a single frame. A single tile or combination of tiles could be used to create a stunning kitchen backsplash. Whatever creative way you choose to display these tiles, they are collector pieces and deserve to be displayed. Call our showroom at 877 737-0554 to inquire about this rare find.
