Jeffrey Evans to hold annual antique ceramics auction April 14

MT. CRAWFORD, Va. – Several fine private collections amassed over decades form the backbone of an 18th and 19th century ceramics auction to be held at Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates on April 14. Following the strong success of last spring’s selection of items from the collection of George and Mickey Deike, the auction house will be holding Part II of the Deike’s collection of Peafowl, shell-edge and Prattware-decorated English Pottery. will provide absentee and Internet live bidding.

The catalog of more than 500 lots includes creamware; pearlware, including many jugs, coffee and teapots; canary yellow; lusterware; 400-plus pieces of English and American transfer-printed wares in many color variations, featuring romantic, rural and historical scenes, as well as Flow Blue, Japaneseque pottery and children’s wares.

The auction starts with a small but strong selection of 18th and 19th century porcelain. Lot 2 is a Bristol teapot, cover and stand, formerly in the Trapnell collection, with a gilt strap-work band identical to that of the Ludlow service, but without bearing arms. It is estimated at $2,000-$3,000.

Within the Continental porcelain offerings, the highlight is an extraordinary group of 12 green-ground plates centering flowers by Feuillet. The Vieux Paris plates are lavishly decorated with ciselè and rouletted 24K gold paste to the rims. The plates are expected to bring $4,000-$6,000.
