Well they could attract more custom + customers by reducing their goddamn premiums - I have zero sympathy. Shrugs

Viewing was also difficult as in the morning there was an auction going on in the same hall which meant those who were supposed to be showing Poole items often had to go off to man the phones for bids or to sort out buyers purchases.

In the afternoon it was no better with only one person in the hall trying to deal with everyone's enquiries. In the end We were told to look at things ourselves!!!

this used to be one of the top Poole auction rooms, it seems things have slipped quite badly

I think they have added more lots, there are now 291 lots. Nothing that is particularly special but I'll bid on a few pieces. The sale date is much earlier than usual which may have had an affect.

another year that I won't be bidding, do you remember how we would look forward to the two Poole auctions and make long lists of lots to bid on?

looking through the years in this thread tells me the rot really set in three years ago when Poole prices hit rock bottom.
Just goes to show it's best to buy the really rare pieces that hold their value

There are a few gems in amongst the rather 'run of the mill' lots. We always regard these sales as an excuse for a few days on the Isle of Purbeck so don't worry too much if there isn't much that is for us. I do realise though that a place like Cottees that has always had close links to Poole pottery needs to work harder to maintain its position ( if it still has one ). I do not think they are the first choice for people selling good pieces anymore, other auction houses can get better prices.

Do we think they'e been somewhat left by the wayside?

When I evenyally dispose of my Poole collection, they may not be the "go to" auction anymore.

Poole seems in decline as a town not just Cottees

Yes the recent closure, but an incredibly wealthy area none the less.
That's why Poole pottery sold the Quayside, So 1m flats could be built in a prime spot.
