THE MURRAY GARDINER ROYAL DOULTON COLLECTION.
Wednesday, 27 January - Tuesday, 2 February 2021

Murray Gardiner has been a longtime serious collector of Royal Doulton. He has been recorded as saying 'you don't have to be completely crazy to become a collector but it helps'. It all started when his wife Lois gave Murray a character jug as a birthday present, he never looked back. As Murray's collection grew so did his focus on Royal Doulton with the realisation that 'Although often more expensive than other makes, I recognised the superior quality and liked the interesting range of characters. The huge variety of glazing colours and styles also make the pieces distinctive'. Murray and Lois retired from their South Waikato antiques business after some 30 years. Whenever out on the hunt Murray's focus was also strongly on items for his renowned collection, he could not help himself. His collection has featured in numerous articles and is offered here for online auction at no reserve. He wishes the purchasers gain as much pleasure from the items as they given him. Courier and packing options are available at buyers expense and risk.
