It was with great pleasure that we offered Nick Rocke’s collection of British Art Pottery, paintings and furniture in a single owner auction. Nick was a very good client of Woolley and Wallis and supported nearly every 20th Century sale organised at Woolley and Wallis over 10 years. Nick’s houses in London and Bournemouth were both full of pots of all kinds. His passion was for Ruskin and Pilkington’s Lancastrian and his collections of these classic British art potteries is amongst the finest in private hands. Nick also pursued a wide and varied interest in contemporary ceramics (and paintings) from Bernard Leach to the present day potters, be they local to him, internationally renowned figures or emerging potters whose work he spotted and appreciated.
The sale achieved a 100% sold rate.
