The pair of vases and covers encrusted with snails, lizards, frogs and foliage, right, by Zsolnay Pecs, stood an impressive 18in (46cm) high. Contemporary to the
majolica neo-Palissy wares made across Europe in the late 19th century, they were extremely well modelled and in fine condition given their many extremities.

Consigned to West Sussex from a private source in Hampshire with an estimate of £1000-1500, they sold at £3600 and will return to Hungary.

Right, is a Chinese mid 17th century blue and white brushpot decorated with figures in a landscape and modelled with foliate borders in a style characteristic of the Transitional period. At 12in (30cm) high, it was a fine size but was severely damaged – a large crack ran from one side to the other.

Nevertheless, it sold at £1000 (estimate £200-300).
