British potters steal the limelight in New York

Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and second-generation UK artists dominate sale of private collection

Hammer highlights


A 130-lot collection of studio pottery, featuring many of the best-known British names in the field, both past and present, was the focus of Cottone’s (18% buyer’s premium) sale of the estate of Annette McGuire Cravens in Geneseo, New York on September 22.

McGuire Cravens, who died earlier this year, was a much-travelled philanthropist, whose donations included 110 works to the University of Buffalo.

Her studio ceramics were part of an ensemble of around 300 lots that also encompassed modern design and a selection of antiquities and ethnographica.

British, American and European artist-potters, both past and present, were offered.
