With 450 lots, the auctions provide ample opportunity for collectors, dealers and new buyers, with a treasure trove of antiques including sought-after pieces that are sure to see lively bidding. The highlight for many will be the collection of Martin Brothers pottery, with 26 lots including a rare Two Face Glazed Stoneware Jug, modelled by Robert Wallace Martin in 1908 (Lot 203 ).
For Moorcroft aficionados, the selection includes Florian Ware, Hazelden, Claremont and Eventide. Among the highlights is a pair of Wisteria Tall Vases, c.1907 (Lot 176 ) and a beautiful Big Poppies Vase, c.1920 (Lot 114 ).
