Perfect Pieces is in print again this month in the March/April 2008 edition of Antiques Info magazine.
The Crown Devon feature is written by Roland, with pictures taken from the our database of past and present stock. The article takes a look at the current market for Fielding’s Crown Devon and highlights some of the rarer and more collectable pieces that are available.
If you’re interested in learning more, the new edition of the magazine should be in your newsagents very shortly – any feedback will be more than welcome.
Perfect Pieces has been featured in print again – this time in Collect It! magazine with a detailed guide to buying and selling ceramics at auction. “Making auctions work for you”, by Roland Head, includes illustrated examples of crafty restoration and concealed damage, as well as a breakdown of the true costs of buying and selling at auction.
The article is in the June 2007 issue of this popular collectors’ magzine and is in the shops now!
We received a pleasant surprise in the post this morning – the latest (May/June) edition of Antiques Info magazine, containing another of our articles and a selection of photographs from our archives.
The article is “20th Century Ceramics: Are We Exporting Our Legacy?”, and takes a look at current collecting trends for Carlton Ware and Wedgwood lustre wares, observing how many of the finer examples of these pieces are presently being sold to overseas collectors.
The article has been well-illustrated with a range of photos from our archives and those of Antiques Info, and this is always one of the more interesting antiques magazines on the market, with lots of good quality information. It’s well worth a look if you are passing a newsagents.
We should have one or two more articles appearing in various antiques and collectable magazines in coming months – I’ll post updates here as and when they are published as the dates aren’t all fixed yet.
