Part I of the Chappell Collection of 17th and 18th Century English Pottery
From an interest that began in 1969, Troy Dawson Chappell had a love affair with early English pottery that drove him to collect until the early 21st century. Part I of this collection epitomizes the diversity in his collecting, from the early slipwares to tin glazed earthenware, salt-glazed stoneware, and lead-glazed creamwares. His emphasis was in the diverse and sometimes subtle ways by which potters and decorators produced their wares, and his discerning eye and collecting acumen are exemplified by offerings such as an impressive Tin-glazed Earthenware Charger featuring Queen Anne (Lot 206, $15,000-$25,000); a Salt-glazed Stoneware Ale Mug (Lot 218, $5,000-$7,000); and an Agate Ware Milk Jug and Cover (Lot 249, $2,000-$3,000).
