A pair of Royal Worcester vases and covers
The ceramics market is one of the most diverse for collectors with an eclectic mix of buyers looking for individual factories, specific designers, particular artists and specific subject matter.
Every month our three salerooms include many ceramics within the Collective Sales.
This will range from 17thC and 18thC Delft porcelain from England or Europe. Chinese and Japanese pieces have their own specialist Asian Art sales, whilst pieces from the 20thC including the most known factories of Royal Doulton, Clarice Cliff, Beswick, Royal Crown Derby, Beswick, Lladro and many others regularly feature.
A recent collection of Russian figures included a single example figure of a Laplander sold for £14,000 as part of an extended collection.
Highlights from our extensive back catalogues of sales range from the £3,000 paid for a pair of Worcester vases by Charles Baldwyn and £5,750 paid by a New York collector for a Gilbert Bays Doulton water feature. The list is endless.
Whilst all Collective Sales include a diverse range each year we hold three or four specialist ceramic sales per annum to incorporate connoisseur appreciated factories such as Bow, Chelsea, Derby, Lowestoft, Pinxton and Worcester.
There is diversity in our sales and our Resident Valuers and Consultants offer auction advice where required.
