Minton and Victorian Floor Tiles


One of the nice things about Victorian floor tiles is that often the manufacturer of the tiles had their name embossed on the screed face of the tile, this would have been formed within the mould during production.

One of our projects has involved the relaying of a Minton Victorian tile floor and the reverse showed perfectly the manufacture stamp.

In the mid 1850’s Herbert Minton gifted over 50 entire tile schemes to Churches in Staffordshire and surrounding counties in the UK, they were one of the major designers and producers of tiles during the Victorian and early Edwardian period.
