    A Royal Worcester vase by Harry Davis (1885-1970).

    The collection of Henry Sandon, porcelain and pottery expert on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, is to be offered at Chorley’s next April 18. In 1967 he was appointed curator of the Dyson Perrins Museum at the Royal Worcester Factory, a position he held until 1982 and the Royal Worcester vase pictured here is among the highlights of the collection. It is estimated at £800-£1,200. Choral music first brought Henry Sandon, who was born in 1928, to Worcester where he taught at the Grammar School and sang in the cathedral choir. “I discovered ceramics everywhere. I dug up Roman and Medieval pots in my garden by the Cathedral and was captivated by their history” he recalled.
