Auction of Jill Burridge Collection.
The late Jill Burridge, a former member of the Shelley Group, had a fabulous collection of Wileman. Several of her more interesting pieces were sold at Adam Partridge Auctioneers sale, Macclesfield, on 1 November this year and a supplement to our usual 'Noteworthy Lots' page has been produced. This may be viewed through that page or via this link - Auction of Jill Burridge Collection

Chris Watkins has produced another study article, this time featuring the vase shapes produced for Wileman by Mrs Elizabeth Waterhouse. As usual the new page can be found under the Shelley Study section of the website or from the link below:- Elizabeth Waterhouse Vases.
