A decade of Wedgwood Collections at Auction: Observations from the Podium
Speaker: Stuart Slavid
Mr. Slavid, a vice president of Skinners the Massachusetts auction house, has had over the past decade the opportunity to catalog and sell many of the finest Wedgwood collections to come to market. Some of these include the Tongues, Traubes, Barbara and Hensleigh Wedgwoods, Mones, Kanters, Rockwell, Shulman, and Weitzen collections. Stuart's talk will feature many behind the scenes anecdotes and personal observations. For those of you who have never had the opportunity to attend a Skinner's auction and see Stuart at the podium, he is possessed of an engaging manner and wry sense of humor. This will be quite an informative and entertaining evening.
Stuart Slavid has been Director of Fine Ceramics at Skinner since 1989 and a vice president since 1998. He is responsible for cataloging and conducting five English and Continental, as well as, two Fine Ceramic auctions throughout the year.
In addition, Stuart is an auctioneer and appraiser at Skinner where he has done appraisal days, benefit auctions, and traveled extensively with the Chubb's Antiques Roadshow, a popular public television program produced by WGBH Boston, and broadcast nationwide. He belongs to many ceramic organizations including the AC, ECC, China Students Club of Boston, and the Wedgwood Societies of Boston, Southern California and New York.
