European & Oriental Ceramics

The Ceramic and Glass department handle 18th century Chinese and Japanese ceramics; rare English and Continental ceramics from the early 18th through the 19th century and decorative glass from the 17th through the 20th century.

Oriental and European ceramics, along with decorative glass, are typically included in either our 1 or 2 Day Fine Art Sales.

Ceramic and glass remain popular in our sales. The Asia market is still buoyant and Brightwells specialists have the expertise and experience required to handle the valuation and successful sale of these highly collectable pieces.

The variety of ceramics that Brightwells have had the pleasure of handling over the years is vast, from period to contemporary, including all major factories. Worcester fruit and other painted pieces remain popular, as do contemporary pieces from designers such as, Clarice Cliff & Lucy Rie and Decorative Glass such as Lalique, Whitefriars and Scandinavian Art Glass.


We have the facilities that can cater for those consigning single items or disposal of an entire estate. If you have items to sell, Brightwells Fine Art Sales are the gateway to a national and international Fine Art Market. Call 01568 611122 to book a free valuation, either in our saleroom or your home.
