Ceramics and glass are divided between regular weekly sales, with some things held back for our ‘fine’ sales.  There is no hard rule for which goes into which sale, but we tend to save the better than average quality items for the fine sale – typically with estimates of £300 and above.  Recently, we sold the Pugh Collection of English Ceramics – a few examples below.

A Chelsea coffee cup, saucer and related plate, painted with exotic birds in puce monochrome attributed to Joseph Duvivier, with gilt rims, gold anchor mark, circa 1760. (3) Plate 17cm diameter
