Large pieces, often elaborately moulded with naturalistic or classical motif, were meant for use in conservatories or entrance halls. The bright colours were achieved using first a tin enamel to create a white surface which is then painted on and covered with a transparent glaze.
One of a pair of large Minton Majolica jardinières, c.1870, of ogee form with scroll handles. Moulded with fox gloves and ferns in high relief, they are painted in colours on an ivory ground, the interior painted blue.
Purchased from the estate of the late Lord Wraxall with the assistance of the NHMF and donations from members and supporters.
