Bio

Stuart Slavid joined Skinner in 1989 as director of the Fine Ceramics department, specializing in English and Continental ceramics of the 18th through 20th centuries. Stuart is internationally recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Wedgwood pottery, and his life-long passion for English pottery and ceramics characterizes the strength of Skinner’s fine ceramics department.

In addition, Stuart is a recognized expert in Asian material, particularly silver and porcelains. A former partner in his family’s antiques business, which specialized in European and Asian antiques, Stuart dealt in Chinese and Japanese furniture, paintings, porcelain, and silver starting in the early 1970s, and exhibited at major antique shows across the United States.

In 1993, Stuart was appointed director of Skinner’s European Furniture & Decorative Arts department. For the first four years of his tenure, this department also included Asian Works of Art. Under his stewardship, Asian art grew until it was spun off into its own department in 1997. Stuart also oversees the Silver department, which hosts quarterly auctions with the best in American, English, Continental and Asian silver.

As a leading auctioneer and general appraiser at Skinner, Stuart often lectures, conducts benefit auctions, and can be seen regularly on the PBS series Antiques Roadshow. He belongs to a number of professional organizations, including the China Students’ Club of Boston, the Wedgwood Societies of New York, Southern California, Washington D.C., and Boston, and is on the board of directors of the American Ceramic Circle and the Wedgwood International Seminar.

Stuart’s vast knowledge and experience have helped position Skinner as a major world force in the sale of fine European and Asian material to national and international clients alike.
