The Welsh Sale

Sat 12 September 2020, 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.

    PARLIAMENT RECRUITING COMMITTEE colour lithograph - colour Welsh language propaganda poster for World War I recruitment `Y Darn Papur` (the scrap of paper), circa 1914, printed by Johnson, Riddle & Co, London, 72 x 47cms¦Auctioneer`s Note: the `scrap of paper` relates to a contemptuous reference made by the German chancellor regarding the 1839 treaty signed by Germany, France, Britain and Russia which intended to guarantee the protection of Belgium from invasion. The metaphoric tearing up of the treaty by Germany led to Britain`s entry into the war.¦This perceived act of treachery on Germany`s part was widely used in Allied propaganda. The poster was extensively distributed throughout the UK and overseas including this Welsh language version (despite the Army`s ambivalence to the use of the Welsh language).
