We are proud of achieving some exceptional prices for a number of British and Continental ceramics over the years, and we are also privileged to have handled a number of fine private collections. We always have a large and diverse section of British and Continental ceramics within our Fine Antiques auctions.

The market has weakened for ‘everyday’ and ‘mid-market’ ceramics, however it is particularly strong for the earliest German, English and French porcelain and pottery. In 2021 we were delighted to catalogue and auction a mid 18th century private collection of porcelain scent bottles predominantly by Charles Gouyn. This collection had been in the same family for generations and attracted international telephone and internet bidding with the final hammer price totally £25,000 (plus BP).

We have also enjoyed auctioning private collections of early 18th and 19th century Meissen porcelain, which continues to attract strong interest from the European market. In recent years we have also sold many collections of Royal Worcester porcelain by decorators such George Owen, Richard Sebright, Harry and James Stinton, Edwin Salter to name but a few. Stand out pieces of majolica by Minton, George Jones and Wedgwood are also in high demand.

In recent years we have witnessed a sharp growth in 20th century British studio pottery. Dame Lucie Rie is one of the most innovative and influential potters of the 20th century and her works are commanding astonishingly high prices at auction. Other notable potters include Bernard and David Leach, Hans Coper and John Ward.
