Ceramic jugs commemorating the anti-slavery movement have been snapped up by British museums looking to 'redress the balance of white art' in their collections.<br />
<br />
The eight jugs went for up to 15 times their original estimates when they sold at auction.<br />
<br />
They were part of a huge collection of commemorative jugs amassed by the late Robin Simpson that sold for over £400,000 in total.
