Another Record Breaking Auction for Rare Lamps, Glass & Fine Jewelry

It was standing room only in the auction hall for James D. Julia’s June 16th Rare Lamps & Glass auction. The day was an incredible success, with a total of over $4.3 million in gross sales, setting a new division record for the second auction in a row. Tiffany Studios ruled the day, with many of our clients telling us it was the best Tiffany auction in the last 25 years. Highlights included lot 1108, an impressive and rare Tiffany Studios floor lamp with all over dogwood design and an unusual irregular floral lower border which sold for $406,600, blowing through its pre-auction estimate of $100,000-150,000. Another Tiffany highlight was lot 1099, a dragonfly chandelier that was estimated at $100,000-150,000 and sold for an impressive $228,100. Lot 1365 was a spectacular Tiffany Studios Wisteria leaded glass window that also shattered its pre-auction estimate and sold for $257,850. Stay tuned for more highlights from this record-breaking auction!

Make Us an Offer on Unsold Lots
Despite the overall success of the auction, there are always items that remain unsold, and we have a wonderful selection of items available. These items are posted online and will be available only for a brief period of time, so if you are interested in making an offer, please do so immediately.

If you have any questions or require additional information about a specific lot before making an offer, please contact our office at 207-453-7125. The first offer to be accepted by the consignor will determine the sale. In other words, if two people submit the same exact offer, should the consignor accept the price then the item would go to the first party who made the offer so be sure to check out the list immediately.

When purchasing unsold lots, it is important to note:
1. Some consignors may decide not to sell even if the offer is in or above estimate; whereas some consignors might consider an offer below estimate.
2. If you submit an offer, our policy is to convey the offer to the consignor. If they accept, we get back to you as soon as the consignor approves.
3. If you are interested in an item, it is imperative that you submit your offer immediately. Assuming a consignor is willing to sell, everything is on a first come, first served basis.
4. It is also important to note because of the tremendous amount of responses we receive, that we cannot respond to everyone. On the more mature offers, we try to personally get back to you even if the consignor declines. However, on low offers if they are declined by the consignor, we may not have time to respond to you.
5. If you are successful, once we receive approval from the consignor, we will get back to you immediately.
6. Because of the great amount of activity it is very difficult to get back to offer makers if their offer is not accepted so this is not really a “haggling” process and we encourage you, if you want the lot, to make your very best offer on the first go round.
7. If your offer is accepted, you will receive an “offer to buy form” which must be signed to confirm you purchase.
8. All post auction sales fall under the Conditions of Sale for the auction, and the 45 day guarantee starts the last day of the live auction.

Please note that if your offer is accepted, it is subject to the Buyer’s Premium just as it would be if you bought at the auction.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope that you find some items on our unsold list that you would also like to add to your collection. If you have any questions, please call us.
