On frequent road trips, Beverly would visit antique shops while Benton napped in the car. One fateful trip changed everything. When Benton wandered into the store, he noticed a commemorative plate depicting Plymouth Rock. Being an American history buff, he was hooked. Spanning forty years of collecting, Beverly and Benton assembled an unprecedented 4,000-piece collection of Wedgwoods production of transfer printed plates, bowls, tiles, and plaques. Each piece was meticulously catalogued and studied. Together they researched every piece using the archives at the Buten Museum and the Wedgwood Museum. This wealth of information was shared with fellow Wedgwoodians when this dynamic duo lectured to the Wedgwood Society of Boston and the Wedgwood International Seminar. Benton also had the opportunity to lecture to the Wedgwood Society of London in the fall of 1988 at the London School of Economics. The articles they co-authored were published in antiques periodicals. In addition, they maintained extensive correspondence with numerous collectors and dealers to share their knowledge. Although collectors remember Beverly and Benton for their meticulous scholarship and painstaking research, they will be best remembered for the warmth of their friendship.</p> <p>Earl L.

At the urging of Harry Buten, Earl soon joined the Wedgwood International Seminar and learned the joys of studying and collecting Wedgwood. In 1971 he founded The Ivy House in Dallas, an English tableware shop specializing in the products of Wedgwood, both old and new. Known as one of the most comprehensive Wedgwood stores anywhere, his establishment was often visited by Wedgwood notables, from Lord Wedgwood, Sir Arthur Bryan, Moira Gavin and other Wedgwood executives, to antiques authorities such as Robin Reilly, Bruce Tattersall and Gaye Blake Roberts. Master Potters came each year from Barlaston to demonstrate their skills, and several special editions were made exclusively for the store. Earls expertise is respected by collectors on both sides of The Pond. Robin Reilly recently noted that Earl Buckman is one of the best informed and most reliable dealers in Wedgwood that I have known in the past thirty years.</p> <p>Ron and Carol Glynn Collection of Wedgwood and Related WaresLots 91-111, 125, 131, 133, 135-137, 139-142, 144, 147, 152, 156-158, 159A, 160, 165-167, 169, 171, 175, 176, 180, 182, 183, 185, 187, 191, 194, 199, 206, 211, 213, 218-221, 223, 224, 226-228, 230, 231, 233, 237-240, 243246, 248, 249, 253-255, 262, 263, 265, 268-270, 273-281, 283-286, 288, 289, 291-301, 303-312, 336, 347, 348, 478, 497, 500</p> <p>Icons from the Collection of Louis Albert McMillen (1916-1998)Lots 605, 609, 637, 654, 669, 682, 711, 712, 731, 756</p> <p>A Rhode Island EstateLots 578, 584, 706A, 773, 809, 842, 857, 885, 900, 935, 943, 952, 972, 988, 1022, 1026, 1028, 1030</p> <p>Session I Fine CeramicsLots 1-500to be sold Friday, January 7th, 2011 at 6 p.m.</p> <p>6</p> <p>1.
