We have been asked by Lorne Eede of St. Marys Ontario, to sell his pottery collection consisting of over 150 lots of mainly red ware with a smattering of yellow ware and stoneware from early Canadian potteries in both Ontario and Quebec. Lorne was actively collecting twenty-five years ago when many fine and rare forms of red ware were surfacing regularly and he was connected to important sources like and Gerald Fagan and John Forbes. His early collection was in spittoons but his interest soon expanded to integral saucer flower pots, plates, water and batter pitchers and rare and unusual forms to include a red ware harvest ring, double handled water bottle, etc. 

In addition to the pottery we will offer from other central and south western Ontario collections a variety of antiques and collectables to include duck decoys, furniture, textiles, clocks, etc., in order to be able to offer a balanced, interesting day’s sale for all.
