A collection of Cornish Troika pottery will go under the hammer at Lawrences of Crewkerne, Somerset at their three-day, mixed-discipline sale on July 3, 5 and 6.

Set up by Leslie Illsley, Benny Sirota, and Jan Thompson, Troika was made between 1963 and 1983 at the Wheal Dream site in St Ives.

The eight-lot group at Lawrences includes coffin and disc-shaped vases and this 6in (16cm) circular piece with stylised symbols estimated at £80-120.
