Wrapping up Beyond Wedgwood Blue...

Special Exhibit eBay Auction!

Own a Piece of History

Ruthmere's exhibit Beyond Wedgwood Blue has come to a close - but here's your chance to buy your very own piece of Wedgwood from the exhibit. From November 1st - November 11th, 2021, Ruthmere will be hosting an online auction for the sale of our special temporary collection items featured in the exhibit. Every auction lot will come with its own current fair market value appraisal by renowned fine art appraiser Richard-Raymond Alasko of the Alasko Company, so you can bid with confidence.
