TRINITY COLLECTION – Mini Minor/Cooper Plate
The TRINITY COLLECTION consists of plates designed and created in the Mellor Studio in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, by a team of Staffordshire artists under the watchful eye of Mr. Nicholas Mellor. Mr. Mellor has achieved the distinctive title of Master Lithographer and has been commissioned by internationally famous companies, such as Danbury Mint and The Hamilton Collection, to produce plates for their collector editions. He recently entered a contract with the Jaguar Motor Company to create a plate honouring their 100th year of producing quality automobiles. The TRINITY COLLECTION currently consists of over 45 individual plates in sets of three within specific themes. In addition, the Mellor Studio has produced a 40th anniversary plate honouring the Mini Minor/Cooper. Shortly after the tragic death of Princess Diana, a commemorative plate was created in her memory with an amount from each sale contributed to her favourite charities. Now Mellor Studio has designed and produced a new commemorative plate honouring the 100th birthday of the Queen Mother. We currently have all three in our inventory ready for shipping.
