I attended the mid-summer auction at Alex Coopers, strictly sticking to the North Gallery where all of the bargains are, and came home with a wagon-load of goodies! I have to admit that I spent a little more than I had planned, but there weren’t a lot of people at the auction, and the lots were being hammered down at very low prices.
I haven’t had a chance to translate them yet, but they seem like they’re satirical plates.
In addition to these pieces, I got some great silver-plated footed trays, and more silver pieces, a partial set of Limoges Haviland china, some brown and cream jugs that you can see in the top image and a pair of Staffordshire dog figurines. And some other things!
By Monday, a lot of these pieces should be on my Etsy shop, so check it out.
