Connoisseur Ceramics

At Hansons, ceramics is our passion. We have an expert team, led by Adrian Rathbone, who has a particularly strong knowledge of the subject.

Existing for centuries across the world, ceramics come in all styles, shapes and sizes. Spanning multiple markets and departments, including Asian arts, historica and decorative arts, ceramics are filled with unique histories.

From sophisticated 18th Century Chelsea, Worcester, Derby and Pinxton, to dazzling 19th Century pieces by esteemed factories such as Meissen, Minton, Royal Worcester, Coalport, Wedgwood and Royal Doulton – our experts are true connoisseurs.

Over the years, the connoisseur ceramics department at Hansons has gone from strength to strength. Our specialist auctions showcase amazing finds and often make the national press. For example, six rare 18th Century Chelsea ‘Hans Sloane’ plates, Lowestoft and Whieldon pieces, made more than £72,000.

Our connoisseur ceramics department and specialist auctions are the perfect place to find some beautiful and one-of-a-kind items to suit any collection.
