Bardith has been in business for 58 years. The flowers on these cabinet plates are among the most beautiful we have ever owned. They are both flamboyant and natural. The plates were made and hand-painted at Minton, an English factory, in the early 19th century, circa 1825. Each plate displays a single fabulous botanical flower filling the center and stretching onto the border. Several plates show butterflies and other insects hovering around the flower. The edge of each dish is beautifully gilded.

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.
