This lovely and elegant oval Vegetable Bowl was made by Minton (Mintons) between 1912 and 1950. This is the very popular "York" pattern which was made for a period of 38 years. It has the green globe and crown mark under the glaze on the bottom. Overall dimensions are 10 inches long and about 7 inches wide. This bowl looks as if it were never used and it is in as near to perfect condition as it could be. Even the gilded edge is not worn or rubbed. Simply Beautiful!!
Minton History for those who are curious....
Thomas Minton founded his factory in around 1796 in Stoke-upon-Trent in England. Herbert Minton, succeeded his father as head of the firm, and developed fine bone china in about 1820. This enhanced the firm's reputation and gained it's notable standing amongst other china manufacturers in England. After Herbert Mintons death in 1858 the Minton name continued as the Company name however the Minton family has not been connected with the firm.
