Catalogue Note

According to P.Atterbury and M.Batkin, The Dictionary of Minton, 1990, p.93, a majolica garden seat in the form of an armchair was shown at the Paris Exhibition of 1867. A coloured design for a majolica armchair is illustrated by J.Jones, Minton, The First Two Hundred Years of Design & Production, p.146, where the author states that the chair was produced but examples remain to be discovered.
