The Welsh Sale

Sat 19 October 2019, 10:00 AM - Cardiff Saleroom, South Wales

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 18 October (12 - 7pm) & the morning of auction (8:30 - 9:45am)
