The Minton name always means quality, and this Haddon Hall vintage bone china cigarette set is certainly worthy of the name. This Cigarette Holder and Ashtray Set features an all-over multicolor floral pattern of pinks, blues, yellows, purples, and greens. It is finished with a smooth edge with gold trim.
This dainty two-piece smoking set is stamped in brown underglaze with "MINTON" across a laurel wreath topped with a crown. "Founded 1793" sandwiches the Minton name. "Haddon Hall" tops the wreath, with "Bone China, Made in England" below.
This popular pattern was first introduced in 1951. Though the pattern was in production until 2011, these pieces were probably made in the early period of production when it was fashionable for ladies to smoke.
The cigarette container is 3-inches long by 1-1/4 inches wide and 2-1/4 inches tall. The matching ashtray is 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
There are no condition issues. The little bit of white in the photo is the remnant of a price tag that has been removed.
