Bringing their trademark focus on handmade and vintage ceramics, Whitley’s Auctioneers presents the No Reserve Discovery Sale of almost 600 quality lots. An extensive sampling of Royal Doulton, Waterford, and Flambé figurines and glassware, this auction merges traditional classics with playful and modern twists.
This auction particularly shines with its Art Deco pieces, figurines that emerged from the 1920s and 30s, in charming detail. Pierrette poses mischievously in a black and white frock, each frill and button meticulously hand-painted. Rosamund with Dog depicts a finely-dressed woman leaning ever so slightly forward, paying no mind to her colorful garments or her attentive companion. These crafted pieces show the very best of the pre-war era’s creativity, design, and attention to detail.
While these vintage statuettes contain undeniable charm, their recent counterparts will surely delight the modern eye. A set of four Royal Doulton figures depicts several characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, while another set portrays the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. With plates, glassware, and even several vases ranging in estimate from $200 to $3,000, the diversity of this auction is accessible and will appeal to buyers of all interests.
