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

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.

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

Did anyone have any luck at Friday’s auction? I’m a bit gobsmacked that my two low-ball absentee bids have come up trumps, Shock especially since I’m supposed to be saving up for CAL next weekend. I’ll have to arrange delivery. Doh!

I thought it was probably one of the weakest studio auctions that Adam Partridge have had. Both in the quality of what was on offer  (fewer big hitters) and the strength of the bidding. There were a higher proportion of unsolds -Most of the Charles Bound for instance- and a fair amount of the curated stuff did badly. As a general criticism, there is too  much low value items for a specialist sale, and Adam Partridge himself is an annoying auctioneer. He showboats, and waits for bottom end bids for  stuff that has not had much demand or value. Being at the auction is a tedious process.
                  I have bought from Adam Partridge in the past, but did not think of bidding on this one. Mind you, our collecting pattern had changed, and we are not really buying any much Leach school now. I think that this auction probably reflects the general state of the country and market now. People are being cautious in both selling and buying, because they are uncertain of the future....Bloody Brexit!

Oh so it's not just me who does that? Laughter

some auction houses are accommodating when it comes to delivery but when you deal with specialist couriers things can get expensive and there's often a reason you got it cheap (damage)

They do have a very good sparkly new website now, which promises to be a very good price resource site. Especially if they include the auctions from previous years.
https://live.adampartridge.co.uk/m/view-auctions/catalog/id/132

Personally I only bid if I can collect. Have had disastrous experiences with couriers, never again! And boy were they expensive.
To give Adam Partridge their due, their condition desciptions are truly excellent and honest, and are one of the very,very few auction houses you can trust in this respect, At least in their Studio pottery sales.

They seem to be including commissioned pieces by a few contemporary potters these days and I had gone on just to see the Ben Fosker pieces, but I can buy direct from him so there wasn’t much point in buying via an auction. Last auction they had Steve Booton moon jars but they sold badly; I don’t think many collectors know about him yet except via the Facebook collectors groups, and he’s another one I buy from directly

Jason Wood (Adam Partridge's studio pottery expert) of course is trying to do something of the sort that Cyril Farnkel did with Bonhams so suceesfully. Unfortunately he is not a personal friend of Lucie Rie, and with a hugely talented group of studio potters that merged in the 70's and 80's that he could 'curate' from. Moreover Adam Partridge and Macclesfield is not London and an International auction house like Bonhams.
