The Welsh Sale is a hugely popular auction of Welsh Art and Welsh porcelain, pottery and selected Welsh items.

The sale has been operating for over 10 years in its current format and has in that time generated some record prices.

We have in depth knowledge and expertise in the foremost Welsh artists, Swansea & Nantgarw porcelain and Llanelly pottery.

We were the valuers of Sir Kyffin Williams’s estate in 2006 and his art work is a prominent feature of every Welsh Sale as is Donald McIntyre, Josef Herman, Graham Sutherland, Gwilym Prichard, C F Tunnicliffe, John Piper and most of the well-known 20th Century Welsh painters.

Viewing: Friday 22 March (12 - 7pm) & the morning of auction (8:30 - 9:45am)

    ARTHUR CHARLTON (1917-2007) colour lithograph - Swansea footballers playing against a team at the old Vetch Field ground circa 1950s (with referee in a blazer), unsigned, 28 x 38cms¦Auctioneer`s Note: Arthur Charlton was born in the North-East of England but Swansea became his adopted home from 1952 onwards. A prisoner of war from 1942-45, he set out to record his experience through drawings and a diary; lack of materials forced him to improvise by utilising whatever materials were available, including bitumen paper, biscuit wrappers and the backs of labels from tins. On the 23 April 1945 he was released by the Russian army and flown back to England where he resumed his art education at the Royal College of Art. ¦He then pursued a career as an artist and senior art lecturer, after taking an appointment at the Swansea School of Art. A close friend of the Swansea artists Glenys and Ron Cour, during sixty years of creative activity he created prints using wood engraving, etching, aquatint, lithography, linocut and silkscreen. ¦His work is in the permanent collection of the Imperial war Museum and the Welsh Arts Council (print of Caswell Bay).
