Happy New Year!
Join the Pascoe & Company party at the
2017 Florida show

For the last 30 years, collectors have been flocking to Florida in January for Pascoe & Company’s annual event. The prospect of sun, sea and sand in mid-winter is always a lure along with the opportunity to socialize with fellow collectors. This year, we will be staying at the luxurious Grand Beach Hotel on beautiful Miami Beach and the party will revolve around our gallery in North Miami. Discover more about your collections and acquire new pieces at our exclusive program of pottery and porcelain presentations. Louise Irvine, the British ceramics expert, will be talking about all the treasures in store and Fée Halsted will be traveling from South Africa to meet Ardmore fans.

Seduction & Celebrity

The notorious love affair of Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton inspired a new style of Royal Doulton character jug with two portraits side by side rather than back to back, as in the earlier Star Crossed Lovers series. Bill Harper modeled the first ever double-headed jug in 1997 and followed it with the second and last design in 1998, featuring Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester.
