Well There was a bit of furniture I wanted. At least it went for over what I would have bid but still value. The law is changing on much classic furniture, no more imported Chinese copies will be allowed into the country. So your Eames and Herman Miller will go up in value as people still want the classics but don't want a new chair for ú1500. Even the copies will go up in value, unless someone finds a way round the law.

paying an extra 25% on top of the hammer price is a little off - putting but there are some tempting lots

Another underwhelming Studio pottery section of a Wooley and Wallis auction. Same old names, hardly anything to set the spine atingle. They seem to have a lot of Andrew Hill designed limited edition Imitation Martin's Owl fingies. Wonder what type of collector they appeal to?

I looked at that page 4 times last week and couldn't work it out! RThe first lots didnt reach the reserve so they show no hammer price and I didn't think to scroll down Doh!

These auction results are very useful we should all post results of the reputable auction houses to use as price guides

Lots of unsold and fairly lowish prices, apart from the usual suspects.
The Atlantis did well.

I was at the auction with friends bidding and winning some of the art pottery in the first couple of hundred lots. It was in comparison to other sales slow. Lots not reaching reserves or getting won for close or under minimum estimates. I think it was a great one to attend as a buyer. Its a busy week in auctions around the country with loads of fairs also on including the NEC. I think people got spread to thin and this sale did not get the attention it could have in other weeks. I didn't see the studio side of things but the mixed lots with groups of items went for great prices that I bid on. Glad I wasn't selling in this one.

We viewed earlier in the week and left some commission bids. Picked up some Moorcroft and others quite cheaply. Left bids on some of the studio pots lots because we liked the look of them ( never heard of most of the potters ) but was amazed by the high prices some made. Guy Sydenham vase was nice but 4 thou seems a very high price, personally I didn't think it was that special but as I didn't bid on it I'm obviously not qualified to comment.

Four grand is a good price for the Guy Sydenham áChinaman vase but they are extremely rare, it used to belong to one of the forum members but I don't recall what he paid for it

á
A large part of the Studio section consisted of multi-lots from the remainder of the collection of Cambridge Don John Shakeshaft. He was a huge collector for many decades, and at his death the majority of his vast collection went to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. The remainder appeared at this Wooley and Wallis collection. Some of the lots were ridiculously large, with most of them having real gems amongst the run of the mill stuff.

Hope you got some of them. The size of the lots would normally mean they got sold to dealers who will split them up across online sales channels.

Filling gaps in one's collection really. A Tall Alan Wallwork, and a group of three Nic Collins Pieces. Auctions are a brilliant education. Where else can you actually handle a Lucie Rie or Bernard Leach pot, and examine it really closely?

I think it's often essential to examine studio pottery really closely, I often don't notice the best aspects until I get out a magnifying glass or take close up pics that I then enlarge.
Quite often I read posts on pottery forums and wonder if the author has ever actually held the piece in their hand or looked closely at the finer details.

When We are viewing , I normally take a couple of photos of items we are interested in. Can then examine at one's leisure. Although truth to tell, amongst the average collector, its the overall look and style of a piece that it is judged by. and not the magnified minutiae.

but when you look closely you see how the glazes reacted as they contacted each other creating colours and textures that can't be seen without magnification

And when you look into a microscope you can see a whole new world of billions of little microbes and bacteria....
But its not something one normally does.
Just in collecting Studio pottery one seems to be looked on as somewhat eccentric. If we all went around caressing vases, with jeweller's magnifying glass in eye and proclaiming
'By Jiminy crickets galoshes have you ever seen such an astounding area of Barium glazing, and out-this-world oxidation,....'
We would all be regarded as completely Nuts! Laughter Laughter Laughter Laughter Laughter

Nice chawan at the back of the table. I think I'll keep an eye out on eBay for pieces being resold individually.
