I would be happy to own the onion vase and the Tony Morris tiles have a very low estimate...

A very poor catalogue and also probably the lowest no. of lots ever. I don't think they have anyone who is actively seeking the quality items that they need to make a good sale. The problem then spirals downward as poor items mean poor prices which means future potential sellers will look elsewhere.
We are going down as usual as we always make it a long weekend and there is a band at the Square and Compass on Sunday lunchtime.

Lets hope so but they are going to have to add a lot of quality lots pretty quick and before any catalogues are printed.

Looking at the photo it would seem to be a problem with the tile on the top left, might be the glaze or it might have been broken and glued back together. I'll know when I view them but they are implying that there is a fault.

I'd have said top left smashed into atleast 5 large pieces, bottom right seems to have been broke almost in half and "restored".

Do I get the feeling that you are guys are approaching the Cotees sales more in hope than expectation? Something that used to really good is now a ghost of its former self?

spot on Phil, 15 years ago we would be rival bidders and would have each bid on dozens of lots but the last 10 years has been patchy at best

Well, it's been many years since Cottees held an exciting auction of Poole pottery but this one is a belter!

Many of the items were used for photos in H & A book and the Watsons are mentioned on the 'acknowledgements' page. Many rare pieces particularly if you collect 1900 - 1930's period.

I agree, the rare and exciting pieces are from that period which means I won't be buying

The words 'Rare' and 'Exciting' when talking about auctions used to actually cause a shooting pain in my posterior.. Then I realised it was actually my Wallet Wincing.... Happy
