Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 18th March, 2014
This week, Young’s Auctions has a massive collection of more than 150 Royal Doulton character jugs occupying several cabinets as its main auction feature from 9.30am Friday at 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.
The jugs, from a deceased estate and collected over 30 years, include graphic faces of pirates, masked bandits and young maidens and should be enormously popular among auction goers, who have already had a taste of what was to come in the past couple of weeks.
Other pottery to feature in the auction includes Remued jugs and works by Eric, Martin and Guy Boyd, Philippa James and Castle Harris – along with examples of Moorcroft and oriental ceramics.
There also is a sizeable number of collectible paintings by several well-known artists including A.A. Prout, Syd Mather, Brian Nash, John Colin Angus (pictured) and Arnold Jarvis.
