Posted on: 16 December 2015
The British & Continental Ceramics & Glass Auction, held Tuesday 15th December, proved that once again, the big names of British ceramics continue to be in demand. Of particular note, the auction was marked by a collection of Royal Crown Derby imari pattern services and paperweights, dating from the early twentieth century with some more modern examples featuring. Lot 550, an extensive Royal Crown Derby imari pattern dinner service, was well-admired on the view. After competition in the room, this service sold for £500 hammer. Lot 469, four Royal Crown Derby plates, also sold well after competition online, achieving £170 hammer. A star lot of the auction was an ever-collectable item of Wedgwood Fairyland lustre (lot 493) by Daisy Makeig-Jones in the leapfrogging elves design. The hammer landed on £550 hammer.
Continental examples also got bidders hot under the collar with the most charming lot, a Rosenthal figure modelled as a macaw (lot 479) selling for £500 online after competition on the phone and in the room. Lalique glass was a feature of the auction, with a ‘Fantasia’ pattern vase (lot 484) achieving £340 hammer. A large Capodimonte porcelain figure group modelled as ‘The Last Supper’ (lot 457) exceeded its estimate of £100-200 to make £280 hammer.
The British & Continental Ceramics & Glass Auction will take place Tuesday 16th February from 12pm. To consign to this auction, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0141 810 2880.
