Macclesfield in mid-October. Some very fine pieces, if you have the money.

the Keeler lots have reasonable estimates

The problem is that the lots are on show for viewing in London for several days at the end of Sept./ early Oct. (at Contemporary Ceramics) so the items that are wanted ought to be seen by those who wish to bid.

Most of the estimates are not unreasonable but sometimes high estimates can be a good thing, as they put some potential buyers off.

I'm not a jewellery man but I like the look of some of that too.

It looks like one of those classic Bonhams auctions organised by Cyril Frankel in the 1990's, with estimates to match. The Firths were great friends with Bill Ismay,and it shows.
The highlights are on show at the CPA gallery opposite the British Museum at the beginning of October. If I was not on holiday,I would go to that.A very rare chance to see such an historic collection of Rie,Coper,Odundo,Henderson, etc close up.
Estimates seem about right. But it is An Estate Sale,for purposes of Probate and Tax. So Everything has got to be sold,estimates or not.

That's a very good point, philpot.

I had a look at this auction earlier. It has some great items and collectors should have a go at anything that interests them. But I doubt anyone who is looking to sell on anytime soon will be able to make anything from it. I suspect the advertising and provenance of these will get the right buyers interested and generate a premium above normal market value. In the long term I am sure some of these pots will be those most valuable and desired of any. I think these are hold for the future items, investments not really something you can flip quickly for a profit.

I could be wrong of course and I do always say to people buy the best you can when it becomes available and these are the best I have seen in studio.

Went to view the items at Contemporary Ceramics in London today that had been brought down south. As expected only a few of the pots and largely the Ries and Copers. Jewellery too.

Went to see the pots at Contemporary Ceramics today. Must say that I found the Copers really impressive, especially the group of black ones. First time I have seen them so close up. The detail in them is missed when looking at photographs. What did make me smile were the photos of the interior of the Firths home, with the pots in situ; there was about 30 grand worth of pots just on top of the tv! My first thought was that I would have hated being their cleaner. Secondly, I noticed they were displaying some dried grass in a couple of the Copers (lower estimates about 9 grand each!) on their sideboard - still, that's what they're made for.

Over 1 million taken at this sale. Prices were phenomenal.

I decided to ignore, as I was underwhelmed with what they brought down to London.

Auction fever.....Indeedy,deedy. The Ries and Copers more or less went for the prices you might now expect for their work. Substantial and rising,but not out of this world. No world records there. But the rest of it,was mostly well above normal prices for run of the mill work.
Interestingly enough though,the only two Bernard Leach pieces in this sale got nowhere near their estimated prices. And the one good Michael Cardew did not really fly. Changing tmes?

I think some were let down by poor catalogue photos. Saw some photos a friend took on the day and they were far better
