Fieldings house ceramics record - a pair of Mid 18th Century blue and white Limehouse sauce boats selling for £34,000 in 2012.

Alison’s most memorable find - a Meissen teapot sold in 2018. Consigned from a private collection and last seen on the market in the 1940s, this Meissen teapot was quite simply charming. Dating to around 1780, it had hand painted decoration showing Chinese elders taking tea.

Alison’s dream find - a piece of Madoura pottery designed by Pablo Picasso - specifically an animal or bird piece.
