Caroline Dennard came to Halls after completing a History degree with a major focus on Military History at Lancaster University in 2012 and after working at English Heritage and volunteering for the Shrewsbury Museum at Rowley House and for the historic Shrewsbury Flax Mill rejuvenation project.
As head of the European Ceramics, Glass and Military departments, and with an intense passion for both local and world history, recent successes and strong results have paved the way for even bigger and better sales in all departments.
After handling a number of important single-owner collections, the most recent of which was the Maurice Wright collection of eighteenth century Caughley porcelain, Caroline’s further interest and expertise extends to any 18th and 19th century English porcelain such as Lowestoft, Bow, Worcester, Staffordshire, Liverpool and more. 20th century Decorative Arts are also in hot demand, with strong interest in the likes of specialist Royal Doulton pieces and potteries and factories such as Shelley, William Moorcroft and Rene Lalique.
Caroline’s specialism at University was military history and therefore it seemed only natural to take over and begin to develop the Militaria department at Halls. With a keen interest in items from the First World War and Second World War, military photograph albums are a particular favourite as are European edged weapons and bayonets.
If you are a prospective seller of any of these items, please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Dennard for a personable approach to the auction process, and who will be delighted to advise you on the first steps towards consigning your items and achieving the best value possible.
