Just watched an Alan Wallwork vase go for £1500 hammer, very similar to one I paid around £25 for in a gallery in Lyme Regis c.1995, which I sold to a member a couple of years go. ( damn !! )
I thought it would go for the middle hundreds but never 1500.

*embarrassed face* Dont tell my husband; he'd want to sell it. There are a few potters like Wallwork and Maltby that I would take to my grave.

The wavy line one was only 20 cms high! Not that unusual as well. Bought a fair number of ours in the mid 90's. Alan Wallwork's work was always quite affordable. There was some nice pievces in that auction. 2 John Ward, 3 Gabriele Koch, a Takeshi Yasuda...

To keep you occupied in the interim, Dan, I know that Alan and Berry, his friend, used to row out into Lyme Bay and throw slight seconds over the side of the boat.

Perhaps taking up scuba diving is an alternative?

I used to dive when I was younger but grave robbery is more my speed these days

If it is the one with the cross decoration you can just about make out a feint W to the slight left of the auction sticker of the last photo.

That Cross design pot went for a hammer price of £140. Lots of other people clearly had questions about it.

It didn't look right in the photograph but you would really need to see it to be positive either way

That has been the main problem with auctions within the Covid rules. When you cannot inspect the items the photos have to be extremely detailed and of very good quality. The photography has varied very widely between individual auctioneers.
