A specialist auction containing historic pieces of Lowestoft Porcelain will be held in the town next week.

In total 100 lots will be on display at the auction at the Hotel victoria, in Kirkley Cliff Road, on Wednesday, April 25.

The auction begins at 7pm with viewing from 2pm.

It is being organised by Zoë Sprake, whose late husband, Russell Sprake, used to hold auctions of 18th Century Lowestoft Porcelain in the town for 30 years.

Mrs Sprake said: “It is the collection of Jasmine Alston, née Rouse, whose family lived in Lowestoft for many generations and she believes that ancestors of hers worked at the factory when it was thriving between 1757 and 1800. Her father bought a Lowestoft tea bowl and saucer for his wife from a local antique shop in the 1940s, which was very much treasured.
