Catalogue (almost) catastrophe...

After months of work, our catalogue is finally complete. It nearly didn't make it, with a series of mistakes involving lost data and incorrect file types.... But finally it is running off the printing press this very moment.

Touch wood, it should be ready just in time for the exhibition, on Saturday 16th April, 2011.

44 pages long, it contains over 500 items, all illustrated and extensively cataloged. A large percentage is completely fresh stock, and this will be released in our upcoming exhibition.
English ceramics 

Continental Ceramics

Oriental ceramics, and a selection of Sauceboats
A collection of Mortars & Pestles, and some Pottery rarities
Yet more porcelain.... plus some artworks, enamels, and the cover vase, a Derby vase with 'Vertue' by Richard Askew, and a landscape by Zachariah Boreman.
Antiquities & Curios, including some interesting Egyptian discoveries, from old Australian & English collections.
The Centerfold is dedicated to that fascinating product of the Age of Enlightenment, Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. The portrait miniature is a youthful Frederick, c.1760.
And last but not least, some Furniture - to remind you that Moorabool Antiques is not just all about Ceramics - we need somewhere to sit while we study them!

The above mock-up is a quick look- if you would like a physical copy of the catalogue, get in touch.

Alternately, if you can read a PDF (anyone have an iPad?) on your computer, the entire catalogue will be posted online very soon......
Drop us an email if you would like us to let you know when this happens.

Otherwise, our Exhibition 2011 begins in a few weeks, opening on Saturday 16th April, at 11am.

Sorry, no pre-sales!
