One of the great archives of industrial Britain has been saved with help from the Arts Fund. The ceramics company, Minton's Ltd was founded in 1793 by Thomas Minton and operated into the 1990s. The Archive includes thousands of items including original designs, drawings and pattern books. As well as the records of Minton, the collection also includes items from Royal Doulton and other companies taken over by Royal Doulton over the course of the 20th century.
The Archive will be managed and made publicly accessible by Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council Joint Archives Service.
