The Ann Turner Collection of Doulton Pottery

The Ann Turner Collection of Doulton Pottery

We are thrilled to present parts two and three of The Ann Turner Collection of Doulton Pottery, which will be going under the hammer at two separate auctions. The second instalment will take place on Tuesday 18 July and the third on Tuesday 1 August.

Ann Turner, a passionate musician whose husband had affiliations with a Swiss bank, dedicated her life to acquiring exquisite Doulton pieces. Over the course of more than forty years, she meticulously sourced fine-quality items through auctions and reputable dealers. In her home in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire, every nook and cranny was adorned with these cherished finds.


The collection predominantly focuses on the remarkable work of renowned artists and designers who contributed to the Doulton factory in Lambeth during the latter part of the 19th century. Notable names such as George Tinworth, Hannah and Florence Barlow, Mark V Marshall, Frank Butler, Gilbert Bayes, Eliza Simmance, Mary Ann Thompson, and Harry Barnard are well represented. Among these captivating pieces, some exhibit exceptional quality suitable for exhibitions.


We are pleased to present parts two and three of the collection, which will take place on Tuesday 18 July, and Tuesday 1 August.
