Asian Ceramics - and why you need them in your life

Ceramics, except the greats, generally tend to be rather under-appreciated; overlooked in favour of paintings. Perhaps it's their fragility; perhaps it's because they always seem to look best in a pair (or more). Well, our Single-Owner Collection of Chinese Ceramics makes them both accessible and affordable: everything in the catalogue is being sold with - drum roll please - no reserve. This means that if no one else places a bid, you win it for the opening price of $40!

Let your decorating skills run riot. Here are some of our favourite pins for some serious ceramic inspo:
