We can offer specialist advice for studio pottery...
The current rise in the prices achieved for British studio pottery has made it even more important to be sure before selling by auction....
As many other auctioneers become aware of its importance & value, the right help, knowledge & advice for identification & valuation becomes vital... recently works by well-known potters & ceramic artists have been selling for many thousands of pounds in spite of, in some cases, incorrectly low & uninformed auction estimates...

We can offer experienced, specialist, in depth, knowledge on studio pottery based on handling, viewing & appraising it for nearly 30 years. We have also always had a dedicated section devoted to studio pottery in our art auctions.
