Minton and Hollins Astra Ware

A subsidiary company of Minton, Minton Hollins was set up in 1845 to manufacture tiles. From 1868 the company continued independently until 1962. Successful artists and designers of the time produced designs for their tiles, including Walter Crane and Augustus Pugin.

The 'Astra Ware' range was introduced towards the end of the First World War and continued until the 1930s. The Ruskin type glazes are much sought after examples of art pottery.
