Derek Emms - Celadon Teapot 1996

My name is David Hazell and I have been selling on ebay for a number of years under my ebay name of d.hazell with several hundred sales at 100% positive feedback. During the 1990s I accumulated quite a large collection of modern studio ceramics, glass and turned wood but I am now downsizing my home and this means that I need to radically reduce the quantity. It seems sensible to have a dedicated ebay site for these sales so I have started "mypotsandglass" and will be selling a number of pieces through 2011.

I am a very experienced packer so all pieces will be very carefully wrapped in bubblewrap with extra protection where required and sent in a new and sturdy box surrounded by polystyrene packing chips.

This is a Derek Emms studio teapot, one of several I purchased from the Round House Gallery in Tutbury in 1996. It has a gorgeous celadon colour palette of pale greens and creams and is exactly as purchased with no damage and no repairs. It measures 5.5" (14cm) high x 8" (20cm) wide x 4.5" (11.5cm) deep. It weighs 830g unpacked. I am starting the auction at £49.99 - good luck with your bidding.
