An Important Private Collection

Just consigned to Roseberys for our June Design : Decorative Arts 1860 to The Present Day auction is a huge private collection of studio ceramics.

Built up over the past 30 years in the quiet of the West Country it covers predominantly British potters including William Staite-Murray, Bernard Leach, David Leach and Michael Cardew as well as works by other important British / International potters such as Ruth Duckworth and Lucie Rie.

There are important pots including rare signed examples made by David Leach at Dartington, an extensive collection of the work of Alan Wallwork, purchased privately from the potter over the course of many years, and several good examples of work by Lucie Rie and Bernard Leach.
