he did indeed....terrific stuff..the Glynn Williams Acrobats was amazing...and i loved the early Alexander Mackenzie

I wonder how much of this stuff Bowie bought himself..or did an agent.

And whether it was bought for profit or love

Btw..The Nevenson was great too...and not everything was very expensive

I understand he bought what he liked and he did have the money to not care if it went up in value.

The Bernard Leach Leaping Salmon vase went for £26,000 + commission apparently.
Now is that Bernard or Bowie celebratory stardust???? Laughter Laughter

The "Leaping Deer" tile went for £13,000 (est. £800 - £1200) so I suspect the identity of the previous owner had something to do with it.
