Buying & Selling

We are always interested in Trading Pot Lids & Jars. Especially pieces we do not have in our collection.
If we do have an example, then we are only too happy to advise what a fair current market price is and we are also able to broker a sale for a nominal fee, with other collectors, for a honest and fair market price. Many of the items we sell for people who contact us, are supplied with up to date auction and sale records of items that have "SOLD"

Appreciate sale prices are arbitrary figures and seeing an item for sale doesn't necessarily mean it is a current market value.
In fact many lids have fallen in value in recent times. Especially common examples with a book value of £40-60. Whereas lids depicting a Bear have remained stable and in some cases, have risen in value.

We use Keith Mortimer's Price Guide on the Staffordshire types or Coloured examples and often sale records on many of the other types. A highly anticipated publication to rival Ron Dales previous Pot Lid book, we understand is going to be released soon with further information. Stay tuned to this space!
