PEORIA, Ill. – Just Art Pottery Auctions is conducting an online auction featuring over 150 lots of fine American art pottery. Bidding is open now and will continue through March 6. The fully illustrated catalog is available online. Lots will begin closing Sunday, March 6, at 6 p.m. Central. Online bidding is provided by LiveAuctioneers and Auctions.JustArtPottery.com.
It is important to note that this is a timed auction. While there is no real-time bidding, bidders can place bids online through the LiveAuctioneers catalog as late as 7 p.m. Eastern on March 6. Bids made online are kept secret and are pitted competitively. For instance, if you leave a bid of, say, $500 on a piece and the current bid on it is $200, it will not automatically go straight to $500. The new bid will be lodged at the next standard bidding increment.
A few of the highlights in the auction include a rare one-of-a-kind Roseville vase with fish, a hand-carved and decorated Roseville Della Robbia vase with Art Deco fish and a large and colorful 15-inch Rookwood Iris Glaze scenic vase. There is also an estate fresh collection of Newcomb Pottery.
The auction also includes rare and collectible Roseville patterns including experimentals; Baneda wall pockets and 10-inch vases in both green and pink; Futura; Falline; Laurel; Rozane scenic; Silhouette nude; Vista; Wisteria; and many more floral patterns. There is an excellent selection of Weller Pottery including a Coppertone double fish vase, rare Xenia Arts and Crafts vase, Woodcraft owl, and a Weller Forest jardiniere and pedestal. Other notable pottery in the sale includes an early 1904 Van Briggle vase, a collection of Ephraim Faience Pottery, and miscellaneous pieces of Marblehead, Hampshire, McCoy, Hull and Pisgah.
The Auctions.JustArtPottery.com site provides online bidding, absentee bidding, as well as an option for telephone bidding. Pottery buyers can bid in confidence knowing there are no hidden reserve prices and that the condition of each piece is clearly stated in the description and fully guaranteed.
“Online pottery auctions are something we’ve always been drawn to and have wanted to incorporated in our business model. Over the years many of our regular customers have asked us for a live, Internet auction option on our website to both expand their collections of special pieces of art pottery and also to use as a method to sell their pottery when necessary. The Just Art Pottery Auction site has proven an invaluable tool not only as a service to our existing art pottery customers but also to reach new pottery buyers who are just discovering the rich history and beauty of this line of art,” said Greg Myroth, president and founder of Just Art Pottery.
