It's a good idea to keep all archive specialist sale catalogues from the major auction houses. These are a great source of information and you never know you may be able to track down one of your precious purchases which could increase its value. The provenance of a pottery item is wonderful to know and is all part of the enjoyment of collecting. Do you ask for history/provenance when you make a pottery purchase? Any information you are given must be backed by genuine evidence.
