Welcome to the Goss Collectors' Club
An International Society established in 1970 for collectors of Goss and Crested China. Governed by a committee of dedicated enthusiastic collectors, it is non-profit making and exists only to benefit its worldwide membership.
A short film showing a TV interview with one of our long-standing members on the delights of Goss collecting can be found here.
The Club publishes an illustrated monthly magazine, The Goss Hawk, containing articles on Goss and Crested China, details of local regional activities and the annual AGM/Fair at which a number of specialist traders, who are members of the Club, as well as other Club members offer Goss and Crested China items for sale.
Details of the Club’s monthly postal auction, usually containing around 400 items of Goss and Crested ware, can be found both on the web site and in The Goss Hawk. Anyone may submit pieces for inclusion in the auction but only Club members may take part in the bidding. A 12.5% sales commission is charged on all items sold which is used to defray the expenses incurred in the running of the Club. A reserve price may be placed by the vendor on any item submitted for auction. Realisations of the most recent auction are available on the website. Unsold items from the monthly postal auctions may be purchased by both members and non-members at their reserve price.
Membership in the U.K. is, roughly, divided into regions which have their own officers who organise regular meetings at the homes of members.
For anyone interested in Goss and/or Crested China, membership of the Club is a "must". The annual subscription is a modest £22, Pro Rata if joining part way through the year. For an extra £1 a joint membership confers full voting rights on two members of the same household although only one monthly magazine will be sent.
To join, download and complete the application form and send it to the club Registrar (details on the application form).
In addition to the normal membership fee an additional cost to post The Goss Hawk overseas arises. There are two ways of posting The Goss Hawk overseas, and the costs vary considerably depending on country and method used. Please contact the club Registrar, who will be happy to send you full details and a personal quotation, together with an application form.
Dues can be paid from overseas directly into the Club’s bank account in Pounds Sterling with any currency/transfer fees incurred to be paid in full by the sender.
