How to buy at auction with Potteries Auctions

At Potteries Auctions, we hold regular auctions across our two saleroom sites – Silverdale and Cobridge – every month. We also hold specialist Fine Art sales in March, July and November that normally take place across several days.

Please head to our auctions page to find our upcoming auction dates, more sale information and fully illustrated auction catalogues to help you preview the lots available. You can also receive links to our auction catalogues direct to your inbox by subscribing to our newsletter at the bottom of the page, or by joining our Catalogues & Updates WhatsApp group.

Find all the information you need on how to bid on an item, fees, postage and more below.

Potteries Auctions have ALWAYS offered a 6 star service and been extremely kind. The staff are delightful, friendly and more than helpful. I cannot recommend them highly enough… and I’ve had some nice pots from them too!
