Condition report

Crazing over the top and the bottom of the dish. Three strut marks from firing to the underside - bubbling to the glaze around these areas. Two other lines - no cracks, chips. Some dirt to the brown border - this appears to clean off.  See additional images.


Absentee bidding

As you cannot attend the auction in person we can bid on your behalf. You can leave an absentee bid on our website.

The amount you bid should be your maximum bid. We will bid up to that limit for you, and remember you may end up paying less than your limit, depending on other bidding on the day.

You can leave an absentee bid up to half an hour before the start of any sale. Please note when we receive two or more absentee bids for the same amount, the first bid received will be the one taken.

Leave commission bids online on

If you would like to leave a commission bid on our website you can do so up until 30 minutes before the sale starts. Leaving a commission bid through is free for all registered clients. Thereafter you may register bank card details under your account in order to bid live. Click here to register an account.
