Business recovery experts behind the administration and sale of UK ceramics manufacturer Poole Pottery claim they will raise more than £180,000 in a Christie's auction of its museum collection.

Leonard Curtis partners Keith Goodman and Stephen Swaden said that the museum and archive of the famous Cornish Blue potters had not been included in the sale of the business.

Goodman said: ‘As we are obliged to achieve as much of a return for creditors as possible, we decided to put the collection up for auction.’

The sale, which will include hundreds of pieces dating back as far as 1900, will take place on 31 March and is expected to raise strong interest among collectors.
