July 22, 2018. 12:34pm. Prices from yesterday's auction have been posted to the website; click here to view them! THANK YOU to all of our bidders and consignors for making this yet another successful sale. If you were an absentee, phone, or internet bidding on Saturday and were successful, you should receive an invoice--which will, in the majority of cases, include shipping and insurance--by sometime tomorrow morning. In a few cases (for instance, if we do not have an email address on file for you) we will contact you early this week or mail you a paper invoice. PLEASE REMEMBER: If you left a bid for us to execute on your behalf and our selling price is exactly your maximum bid, you may or may not have won the lot depending on whether or not there was another bid that came in at that amount. If you believe that you won something (or you know that you won something--for instance, if you were a live phone bidder) but do not receive an emailed invoice by Monday evening, please feel free to shoot us an email or give us a call.

We are NOW ACCEPTING CONSIGNMENTS for our October auction (date to-be-announced soon). If you have one or more pieces you are interested in having us sell for you, please do not hesitate to contact us today for a free pre-auction evaluation!

Thank you all again for your bids and consignments!

Best Regards, The Zipps

This Summer's sale covers a broad range of stoneware and redware potting traditions and styles, with outstanding objects representing the East Coast from Massachusetts to Georgia, westward to Ohio and Illinois. Among the over 450 lots in this auction are a number of works considered "iconic" in American ceramics and folk art collecting circles. Many of these are entirely new discoveries, and others are works that have resurfaced after many years of enjoyment, or hiding in storage, in houses throughout the country. Size plays a major role in this auction, as a number of pieces, while special in their decoration or form alone, become "stand-alone" objects by their grandiose proportions.

Finally, the Print Catalog for this sale will be shipping soon. It features well over 450 lots of American stoneware & redware laid out over 140+ pages, and as always serves as a great reference source on antique American utilitarian pottery. You can order your copy today by visiting our Online Store, calling us at (410) 472-2016, or mailing a check for $36.70 (includes priority shipping) to: Crocker Farm, 15900 York Rd, Sparks, MD 21152.

Best of luck to all of our bidders and thanks very much to our consignors for making this another great sale!
