Background of Minton porcelain

Minton’s began in 1793 when Thomas Minton founded his pottery factory in Stoke-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, England. In 1796 he formed a partnership with Joseph Poulson, who made bone china porcelain in his nearby china factory. Minton took over the factory in 1798. In 1824 Minton built a new china factory. The company continued well into the 20th century.

Background of Painting in Grisaille

Grisaille is monochrome painting in which an effect similar to a relief in silver is intended. Giotto used grisaille in the lower registers of his frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua circa 1304.
