A ROSEVILLE RARITY!Since 1990, Mark Bassett has also sold many outstanding examples of hand-decorated Weller (including Hudson and Sicard), Cowan limited-edition figures, decorated Rookwood, and rare Roseville trial-glaze and Experimental pieces on consignment.
If you have something of that calibre to sell, you may wish to consider talking with him. (For more Consignment information, go to the bottom of this page.)
Here is the story of a special consignment of American art pottery that Mark Bassett was honored to sell for its owners during 2004.
When possible, Mark will continue to take selected consignments on commission. But because he started teaching full time in 2005, he must keep the total number of consignments to a minimum. As a result, he cannot accept any items on consignment that are expected to sell for less than $500.
On rare occasions, he can accept a collection on consignment--even with individual pieces valued at lower figures than $500--or perhaps he would be able to make an outright purchase.
Today, more than ever, advanced collectors are looking for rare and beautiful examples of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, or Mid-Century Modern pots, whether American or European.
If you have something you would like to discuss with Mark, please contact him.
REMINDER: Mark does not make appraisals for people selling on Ebay or other venues. Nor does he conduct estate appraisals. If you need an appraisal for any reason, click here for some suggestions.
