The auction house, founded in 1991, will continue to hold fine art sales at its Silverdale saleroom near Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The new saleroom will open on the outskirts of Hanley in the Stoke-on-Trent area. Its first sale will be a General and Collectors sale on July 29.

This saleroom was actually the home of the firm for a number of years before it moved into bigger premises in Silverdale. The Hanley location has been refurbished ahead of Potteries Auctions’ return.

Auction manager Kathy Plaskitt said: “The new space will allow us to manage the types of sales we have. The Hanley site will have more general sales.”

The auction house has a focus on British pottery but Plaskitt said the new location will enable the firm to grow its other auction areas such as militaria, Asian art, furniture, jewellery and collectables.

The firm’s buyer’s premium is 24% including VAT.
