ANTIQUES Roadshow expert Eric Knowles staged a talk in Sidmouth in support of Devon Air Ambulance.
The BBC star will spoke on ‘The History of Moorcroft’ at the Methodist Church Hall after teaming up with Goviers of Sidmouth to launch a new collection.
Mr Knowles gave two talks, at 11.30am and 2.30pm, focusing on the history of Moorcroft with particular emphasis on the last 25 years and the influence that Hugh and Maureen Edwards have had on such iconic art pottery, which today leads the market.
The pair rescued the company in 1986 when it was bankrupt in all but name.
