Labels on pots

Ok - who leaves exhibition labels on their pots and who takes them off? I'm meaning non-functional bits of your collection

I leave them on because I think they'll sell better

I certainly like to see original labels on pots I buy off eBay and at auction

I would only leave an original makers label on , exhibition stickers don't ammount to much , not that I have came across many anyway , but I would bin them I don't want a display with them on it .

I have to admit to keeping all the catalogues, private view invites and invoices associated with pots I buy. It was a real godsend when I finally got round to doing a proper catalogue of my collection. And having worked in museums I see the value of this for future generations too

I leave them on, but then I only have two pots with them on. One I accidentally took off and glued back on.

I can understand that ,but labels can be very mis leading as well and unless from an established source then ............well anybody can stick a label on stuff.

Studio-pots has commented elsewhere that Bill Ismay kept all the paperwork, plus photos of his purchases on display in the exhibition (I'm too insecure to go that far!)

Each to their own I say , I have no interest in book keeping whatsoever , Ismay was a different kettle of fish altogether .

Depends if they show while the item is on display, if they would show I'd remove them and place them on the base if they fit.

Hardly any of my pots have exhibition stickers on though.

It would be helpful to me if buyers kept at least some of the information about the pots they buy. I do regularly have to identify pots that a number of my buyers have bought over the years, as they have forgotten who made them. I do get most of these right (I think).

I'm in the keep 'em camp. I only have one actual exhibition/gallery label, but a lot of my Cobridge has the various shop and collectors club auction labels still attached - mostly tucked inside or under the vase, but still attached so they don't get lost.

Partly I think it's just me obsessive/hoarders nature. But also I figure that if I end up selling any in the future, it isn't going to devalue the item and may even add a little. You can never have too much info / provenance in my view.
