A pair of Minton’s pâte-sur-pâte peacock-blue-ground vases titled ‘brewing mischief’ and ‘explosion’ (circa 1883) are among the most highly valued ceramics. Also featured are pieces of Royal Worcester designed by George Owen. A reticulated porcelain two-handled bottle vase pierced with honeycomb reserving a geometric design band and adorned with a band of pearls- a prime piece by the oldest porcelain brand.
