Valuations Expert and Ceramics Consultant
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
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.
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.
