I'm not sure why, but this year has started really poorly in the terms of the quality and quantity of vintage ceramic items at auctions here in Adelaide. If it continues I will have to start purchasing from Melbourne or Sydney auctions just to get hold of some more interesting or collectable, and better quality items. It has been really hard to find other than a few items each week worth buying, or even considering taking a looking closer at.
Often items that at first look interesting are damaged on closer inspection...but anyway here is the sum of what I have been able to locate this week for auction :)
|Some Arabia Finland items|
|Interesting pattern on this Spanish teapot, but in |
very poor condition.
|Star of the week I think - a huge chunky Whitefriars glass vase|
|Quite a few of these Hummel figurines - still quite popular|
|Great retro design on this small European jug|
|Shelley Trios with a great looking Harlequin design.|
