Tiles

Tiles at Gladstone yesterday.

I think they are by Minton which was a Pottery that went out of business a few years ago when a lot of Pottery manufacture went abroad because it was cheaper.

I know lots of people admire these tiles and they are often found in hallways in old victorian houses in this area. Our local church, St Thomas’s has tiles by Minton. The factory was based in Stoke-upon-trent, which is one of the six towns of Stoke-on-Trent.

Many of the people in the town were laid off from factories in Stoke, including Spode. Only a few places still make Pottery now, including Emma Bridgewater, Portmerion, Moorland Pottery, Moorcroft and I think Wedgwood…. There is also a tile manufacturer called Johnson’s tiles. But nothing really compares to the beauty of Minton.

      1. One can never understand what citizens of another country are experiencing. Under our current administration (Pres. Trump), we are once more beginning to thrive as a country. It has been so long. He is working miracles for the people. And, yet, there are powers that constantly attempt to destroy him and this country. It has been years since I’ve felt confident about things here. But I digress. Blessings to you and yours! šŸ™‚
