Antique ceramics discovered in Somerset home

A collection of 18th and 19th-century ceramics has been discovered by a Dorset auctioneer in a 1920s house in Somerset.

Charterhouse Auctions said the collection of the pottery and porcelain includes Italian dry drug jars, Dutch Delft tobacco jars and a small Johanne de Mol cup and saucer made at his Oud-Loosdrecht factory at about 1770.

The auction house has hopes that the rare collection will sell for thousands.

Auctioneer Richard Bromell commented: “We were invited by the executors to clear the property after the owner passed away several months ago. It was a modest detached home and although I hope to see some lovely lots I did not expect to see such a great collection of pottery and porcelain.”

The ceramics will be part of the online auction of collector’s items, antiques and interiors on September 4.
