Customer Question

I have some MINTON china with a mark of a globe/crown with MINTONS inside and in between leaves. Also has EST.1793., then a flag banner with BROMLEY, then MADE. IN ENGLAND. Also has a diamond mark with three sides darker than the right bottom side. Also has MINTON CHINA 7 - 43 embedded. Also has a small gold slash under a number ex: S 340 3. . Also a light red mark above the number I can only describe to look like a hollowed out pineapple? Are these markings normal for Minton china or are these markings/numbers something special?

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Yes, the markings your describe on your china are typical for Mintons. Bromley is the pattern name. The Made in England on the mark indicates these were produced after 1892. S340 is another name for the pattern and shape number. The other marks were in-house inventory and quality control measures. Mintons china in general is special in and of itself, however the marks on yours are typical of all their wares.
