Over the years, Philip Serrell in particular and his Fine Art and Antiques auctions generally, have developed a justifiable reputation for being market leaders in the sale of Royal Worcester Porcelain. There is usually a broad selection of pieces on offer, and the 7 March sale was no exception.
Charlie Baldwyn is one of the most collectable of Worcester Porcelain artists. His work was typified by the three examples in this sale, where Swans were decorated in flight on a powder blue ground. A plate and two vases sold after international competition, for £11,200.
Harry Davis is another Worcester Porcelain artist, who is generally regarded as one of the greatest of the Twentieth century. He decorated his works with a number of subjects, but his sheep are probably for which he is most well-known. A pair of vases about 9ins in height sold, again after international bidding, for £4,600.
Another Worcester favourite is the work of the Stinton family, and two bow pieces - so called by the bow which adorns the pierced neck - decorated with Highland cattle, together with a dessert service decorated with game birds, sold for £12,150.
