The Ceramic and Glass Department of Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood, run by Nicholas Saintey, handles a fascinating variety of pottery, porcelain and glassware. Many hitherto unrecognised and important pieces have been brought to the market place through the department's enthusiasm and expertise. In excess of 5,000 lots are offered every year.

English Pottery

As ceramics become increasingly popular, so the fields of collecting broaden far beyond the traditionally strong market for 18th century English work. Our auctions include examples from most of the better-known English factories, as well as pottery and porcelain from oriental and continental sources. Many owners are also discovering that pieces bought in the 1920's - perhaps as wedding presents for their grandparents or parents - have become sought after antiques. Our reference library can help to establish not only the value but also the full history of the piece.

Glassware


The department also handles all aspects of glassware, from the best of French to early English and the decorative work of the 19th and 20th centuries.
