the poor quality Tony Morris living glaze chargers went for £300 - £380 which is very high in my opinion

Prices for the majority of pieces were extremely high. Consequently I came home with nothing, like many others.Still if people want to pay top money then that is their perogative and maybe the rest of us are undervaluing stuff. There were some nice TM chargers, surely it is difficult to judge quality unless you have the piece in your hand and can look at it up close.

I think it was as much about supply and demand for those pieces that made top money and that includes TM chargers as there are not many about - if any - at 'normal' prices.

They've never 'done it' for me plus they look nothing like a packet of crisps ! But then the thing with Poole is that there is a range/period to suit everyone's taste. I wonder if traditional pieces will still be in the doldrums, there is certainly enough to bid on but what I come home with - if anything - is very difficult to foresee.

Me neither, and they are NOTORIOUS for hairlines.

Some nice Studio/Delphis bits though.

Off to Poole tomorrow morning. There are a lot of pieces that I'm interested in but I won't be surprised if I end up with just a few lots none of which were on my original wish list. Can collect for anyone in my area but you'll need to get in touch quickly.

PP do you B&B it? then go on Saturday? Postal charges are crazy. Might go for once but would mean 6:00AM start and I'm generally lazy and a 10:00AM person myself on Saturdays.

We always make a weekend of it. Plenty of time to view on Friday, maybe a visit to the RSPB reserve at Arne, Purbeck coast, Square and Compass pub etc.

Just 9 days before the sale day Cottees have published the Poole Pottery auction catalogue online

Lots of Tm dragonfly chargers for those who haven't got one and a few onion vases too

I wonder if they have been struggling to find enough lots to warrant an auction? Several of the lots could well be last minute fillers to bulk things out

no this one is exceptional because prices have fallen so collectors are holding on to the good pieces.
I have Cottees Poole pottery auction catalogues going back ten or so years and the quality then was superb! That's when I would buy a dozen or so lots per auction. Excellent

Prices have fallen? Its interesting reading this whole thread. The gung-ho comments of earlier years,seem to have been replaced by rather more sanguine ones over the past year or two.
Poole was always such a sure fire seller as well. Is it now just another mass market pottery manufactuer which does not fit with modern trends for minimalism and less possessions?

that's no doubt part of the problem but mostly it's a matter of market confidence.
Ten years ago I could buy a piece of Delphis and know it would sell immediately for a profit but things are far less certain now generally.
For years I have had three potters who I could buy from and sell the next day for double what I paid but now only one of them remains a sure fire bet

There are no really 'stand out' lots but still a fair range of pieces. As we go down to Purbeck area quite a few times a year I'll still make a long weekend of it - message me if anyone wants items collected and brought back to Camberley, surrey, also will be in south lincs area around xmas.

Further to Dan's comment the problem lies with the business side of the auction. Less items or items with less quality whatever range you are interested in do not bring out the buyers and thus the owners of Cottees receive less in the way of fees.

The future of a separate Poole sale looks a bit grim as the new auctioneer, (John Condie having gone), suggested that in future it may well be combined with Moorcroft, Clarice Cliff etc. to form a 20th Century decorative arts type of auction.

There also fewer buyers actually attending the sale due to internet bidding and this reduces the atmosphere which used to exist at Wareham where you could have a good old gossip on Poole related subjects.

Still came away with 6 items though
