STONEWARE AUCTION INFO

Next Auction of American Stoneware & Redware: March 26 - April 9, 2021
Online / Absentee / Phone Auction

Our 2020 auctions were all held as Remote-Only Internet / Phone / Absentee Auctions due to COVID-19, and our Spring 2021 auction will be held in the same manner. All three 2020 auctions have been tremendous successes, each realizing sale totals over $1 Million for a year's gross of nearly $3.5 Million. We have broken numerous world auction records this year (and have achieved many other important hammer prices), including:

$1,386,840 - WORLD AUCTION RECORD FOR AN AMERICAN UTILITARIAN POTTERY AUCTION. (Prices include 20% buyer's premium)

$480,000 - WORLD AUCTION RECORD FOR NEW YORK STATE STONEWARE.

The prices in our 2020 auctions indicate a strength in the market rarely seen before and a keen focus among collectors to aggressively pursue objects that they truly love. We encourage any potential consignors to contact us as soon as possible as space in our Spring auction is limited. We are all looking forward to 2021, and another year of bringing you the finest selection of early American pottery available anywhere.
