I was at the auction for some of the bidding and viewed on Monday, I think the Poole prices were quite strong bearing in mind that some lots had hairlines - i.e. 256, 259, 270-chip,273-seconds,260-chip, in addition to faults stated in catalogue. Lots 276/7 were nice and consequently did well, I think 279 was overestimated. Good traditional with no faults did well - lot263, 257, especially when commission is added to hammerprice. Clarice Cliff still seems to do well and one Troika lot did 1600 so it wasn't all bad.

good job one of us was at the auction.it just shows how internet info can lead to wrong conclusions and I for one base my market values almost entirely on internet research

The internet has its uses but real life is always best.

The Professor Luke Herman collection of studio pottery.Described asone of the best collections of studio pottery to come to the market for many years.Wellllll...the auctioneers would say that would they not?
Very good, but not quite the cream of the crop. You have to scroll down from the top.

I dunno, HC lot 99, est 20-40k, one tiny pic!
Better amateur pics on ebay for something worth a fiver.

Interesting to see though, some of the potters in the collection eg Andrew Crouch.

There is a page turning catalogue
http://issuu.com/jammdesign/docs/ww_20studio_20pottery_13december201?e=1975639/55113263

But you are right. For an auctioneer that claims to be the leading provincial auctioneer, the quality of detail in their Online photos is poor. Not good enough really,as the majority of their bidding is going to be Online.

But if you are a serious bidder they will send you as many additional pics as you need and those big estimates are because people are paying silly money for lucie rie etc. cos they're trendy.

The estimates are not big. They are all fairly conservative . Its an Estate sale, so all of it needs to sell. As for 'silly money', well its peanuts compared with the King's Ransoms around in the paintings side of the ludicrously hyped contemporary Art market...
