Magnolias from Minton – 1830

Happy Saturday, and today I have something very special. This Minton cup was made in ca 1830. With lively magnolia flowers, some still in bud, it has such unusual colours! This is for someone who loves their garden – no idealised roses, just the honest truth of blossoms as they grow in a rainy climate. No frills. Minton was famous for its blue and green colours, and did very unusual flower and bird designs. It brings so much cheer to my table! You can find the listing here in my Antiques shop.
