April 1 – Beautiful Fresh Stock

April 1

Today we’re releasing a flood of lovely Fresh Stock.
There’s a scattering of porcelain, including Meissen, and some other highly decorative porcelains including the scarce ‘wall pockets’ modelled as birds on nests, and a sweet little pair of ‘perfume ewers’, probably Coalbrookdale, all encrusted in flowers.

The selection of small little precious pieces is mainly of French origin; this is no coincidence, as the branch of the local family they came from traces its origins to a romance in France at the time of WWI: these were just the sort of thing to buy a French ‘sweetheart’, before they came back to Australia and settled down.

There’s a host of other fine pieces, with more to be added shortly. The large-scale ‘Mercury’, illustrated below, is a 19th century Bronze after the 1580 original by Giambologna. It was made for the Medici family of Florence – to put in the middle of a fountain! A very wise choice, considering he was the god of commercial success – and successful the Medici most certainly were.


In other news… we are very pleased to announce our 2022 Exhibition date.
We have waited patiently for our Government to announce when they will call our looming election – but as they have yet declined to do so, and there is very little time left, we have taken a chance and settled on the ‘least likely for election’ Saturday in May – the 7th. It will run for the next few weeks, before we bring it up to Melbourne for our next event….
This Exhibition is an accumulation of wonderful items of quality from the past several years, sourced from all over the globe – but also very locally. Several high-profile collections of ceramics will be included, with many published pieces.
