CERAMICS & GLASS

We keep a close eye on the evolving demand for ceramics and glass, ensuring that any items sold in our Suffolk auctions achieve the best results.

 

It's an approach that allows us to identify those areas of the ceramics market that are currently strong, such as the continuing interest from buyers in China and Japan.
 

Closer to home, items from well-known makers,  including pieces by Moorcroft, Clarice Cliff, Whitefriars and Troika, are all performing particularly well.

 

Our expert team has the necessary experience to identify the pieces that are highly sought after by buyers. For example, we recently sold a Martin Brothers 'grotesque' dragon spoon warmer for an impressive price of £5,000.

 

As with ceramics, items by famous glass designers, such as René Lalique, remain enduringly popular.
