Miami, FL, United States, 2011/09/12 - Venue: OMNI HOTEL 500 California St. (at Montgomery) San Francisco, CA 94104 - Date: September 23-25 - PascoeandCompany.com.
Ceramic art and collectibles from England and South Africa will be on display at the Omni Hotel from September 23-35. This touring exhibition of Royal Doulton, Moorcroft and Ardmore ceramic art is presented by Pascoe and Company of Florida, specialists in antiques and collectibles for the last 40 years. Everything is for sale and collectors will discover some of the finest examples of ceramic art from the early 1800s to the present day.
Show promoter Ed Pascoe says: “This special exhibition allows collectors to handle coveted antique vases and figurines and share their collecting passions with others. You can’t do any of that on the internet! Let’s revive the romance of collecting. Leave your keyboards and screens for the weekend and come to our San Francisco show.”
Collectors will enjoy the free weekend lectures presented by British ceramic art expert Louise Irvine, from London, England. Louise has written many books about Royal Doulton art pottery and figurines and will showcase some of the rare pieces presented at this weekend event. Louise will also talk about Moorcroft art pottery which has been hand-made in Stoke-on-Trent, England since 1897 and is avidly collected around the world. Fans of art pottery will be excited to see some of the latest Moorcroft studio designs for 2011 at this show.
A new feature of the Pascoe and Company road-show events is Ardmore Ceramic Art, which is made by Zulu artists in South Africa. Founded 25 years ago by potter Fèe Halsted-Berning, Ardmore makes exuberant ceramic art, which is modeled and hand-painted in Kwazulu Natal. Since 1985 Fèe has mentored hundreds of talented local people and encouraged them to express themselves in clay. The sale of each unique piece helps to uplift the local community in Kwazulu-Natal, which has been greatly afflicted by the AIDS pandemic. San Francisco art collectors can help to make a difference by purchasing a piece of Ardmore at the Pascoe & Company event at the Omni Hotel
ADMISSION IS FREE on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th February
