Over 240 lots of Royal Bayreuth pieces will be offered on Friday evening. These will include a staggering 14 figural Santas, as well as rare, large-size pitchers of snake, turtle, rabbit, mouse, squirrel and butterfly figures. The Saturday session will boast Victorian brides’ baskets, pickle castors, sterling silver, Burmese and Galle pieces, pieces from Tiffany Studios and more.
