Some of the finest brands and ceramic arts have been gathered in A Celebration of Ceramic Art, the upcoming, massive sale offered by Whitley’s Auctioneers. This sale stands in appreciation of a wide spectrum of decorative pieces, from sculptures and figurines to vases and vessels. Over 500 lots are available, ranging in estimate from $200 to $25,000.
One unique feature of this auction is the complete collections and sets that it holds. Like the full set of American Birds and British Birds from Royal Worcester (sold individually), the cast of a nativity scene, and numerous Royal Crown Derby paperweights. Many of these pieces are of museum-quality, meticulously maintained and preserved. An outstanding attention to detail is particularly highlighted in the numerous botanical and natural pieces, where every flower, vine, and bird is captured intimately.
The most outstanding lots hail from Connoisseur of Malvern, an English producer of fine bone china. A prowling leopard perches tensely on a rugged tree branch in one model, while a furry tiger balances on a pile of stones in another. These hand-painted figures display both the beauty of the models and the skill of the artisan.
