    Sotheby’s First Sale Exclusively Dedicated to European Ceramics, Silver and Objects of Vertu in a Decade
    10.05.2016
NEW YORK

London, 13 April 2016 - This spring will see the first sale at Sotheby’s for almost a decade exclusively dedicated to European Ceramics, Silver and Objects of Vertu. Entitled “From Earth to Fire”, the sale, to take place on 10 May, will focus on the creation of pieces born from the earth and transformed through the kiln into exquisite works. Testament to the ever-growing appetite of international collectors for unique pieces encapsulating the finest craftsmanship and materials of their time, the 265 lots in the sale are led by Dutch silver, ceramics and glass from the collection of the renowned Amsterdam antiques dealer Joseph M. Morpurgo (see separate release for more information). With estimates ranging from £2,000-70,000, the sale also includes sculptural Paul Storr silver, early Chelsea porcelain scent bottles and a private collection of French gold boxes.

Discussing the forthcoming sale, Alice Bleuzen, Sotheby’s Specialist in Silver and Vertu said: “This highly curated sale was put together in response to popular demand from the market. Ceramics, silver and objects of vertu have performed extremely well over the past several years and collectors from around the world are eager for more. We hope that the great quality and diversity in this sale will appeal to an even wider group of collectors and we look forward to presenting these magnificent works of art in London next month”.
