Over 20 years ago I became interested in French ceramics and glass. Living in the Pacific Northwest it was, and continues to be, challenging to view and find good pieces other than at online auctions. At first it was a difficult process, each auctioneer having unique requirements and bid protocols. Happily, since I first began collecting the overall bidding process is more straightforward.
This blog is to share my experiences and to offer helpful tips to the novice collectors who want to become familiar with the various resources available.
My father’s parents are from Hasroun, Lebanon. I hope to still visit there some day…
My mother’s parents are from Civitanova Del Sannio, Italy. I was fortunate to meet relatives and visit this beautiful town several years ago!
I hope you enjoy your visit here and wherever your spirit take you!
