Julia’s Summer 2012 Fine Glass & Lamp Auction Surpasses Million Dollar Mark

With the faltering of the world economies casting uncertainty in almost all areas of life, we did not know what to expect from our June 20-21, 2012 Lamp & Glass Auction. We were delighted that the auction totaled nearly $1.1 Million! The collection of exceptional Moser glass drew a great deal of attention worldwide and was highlighted by the monumental decorated and applied vase which sold for $26,450 within the estimate range of $20,000-$30,000. Once again paperweights drew a great deal of attention and highly competitive bidding with one highlight being a Clichy loop garland paperweight from the Una & Henry Blake collection which was estimated at $5,000-$7,000 and sold near the top of the estimate at $6,900. French cameo glass showed some weakness in the auction but high quality items that were fresh to the market still did very well. A Daum Nancy prairie vase estimated at $10,000-$15,000 sold for $14,950. Good pieces of Tiffany Studios continue to draw a great deal of interest. A few of the highlights include a Tiffany Studios window sketch which was estimated at $2,000-$3,000 and sold for $5,175. A magnificent Tiffany Studios decorated black vase was estimated at $10,000-$15,000 and sold for $25,300. A very nice Tiffany Studios Tiffany dragonfly table lamp estimated at $60,000-$80,000 sold for $69,000. We are already accepting consignments for our fall Lamp & Glass sale.
