The Fired Arts: Curated Selections from
Royal Doulton, Wedgwood and Boehm

January 19, 2019 | 10AM EST

The lost techniques of fired ceramic arts comes to spectacular life at Whitley’s Auctioneers.

Whitley’s head auctioneer and founder, Arron Rimpley, is honored to present the private collection of Open Salts from the estate of world renowned Royal Doulton collector, Elaine Cooper, expert and author of the book Doulton Open Salts.

The auction also includes Royal Doulton Flambé manufactured under the supervision of Charles Noke in the early 20th century and rare, otherworldly Fairyland Lustre produced at Wedgwood’s Etruria Works ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent, by artist Daisy Makeig-Jones. Some of the rarest Royal Doulton Figures from three of the most important private collections in the United States are also for sale.

Whitley’s Auctioneers would like to thank Louise Irvine, the Executive Director of the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts, for sharing her vast knowledge and research to highlight some of the Royal Doulton, Wedgwood and Boehm pieces featured in this auction catalog. Louise was able to provide valuable information about many rare and elusive pieces.  To see other rare treasures, please visit WMODA, the world-class museum on the second floor of the Gallery of Amazing Things.
