AUCTION: The Lachlan & Kerry Ely Collection of English and Australian Ceramics & Decorative Arts

We are delighted to be entrusted with The Lachlan & Kerry Ely Collection of English and Australian Ceramics & Decorative Arts. Passionate collectors, Lachlan and Kerry have put together an impressive collection and anyone lucky enough to have visited their beautiful historic property in Yea can testify of the scale and beauty of the collection.

Their original focus had been Worcester first period but they soon moved towards 20th century English ceramics such as Doulton and Wedgwood, with particular interest in individual designers such as Keith Murray, John Skeaping, Charles Noke, Daisy Makeig-Jones and the Barlow sisters.

Lachlan’s interest in pottery soon moved to Australian post-war studio potters of which he became a great patron. Later his interest turned into potting himself, a full pottery studio with wheels and kiln resided in a studio at the rear of the property.
