The private collection of Dr. Peter and Grace Jochimsen – a bountiful selection of some of the best Wave Crest and French cameo pieces available, plus other fine items – will be sold without reserve on Saturday, October 23, 2021, by Woody Auction, online and live in the Woody Auction hall located at 130 East Third Street in Douglass, Kansas, starting at 9 AM CT.
The Wave Crest features plaques, jardinieres, bells, boxes and vases, while the collection also boasts French cameo, plated Amberina, pink agata, slot machines, a Pairpoint lamp, Thomas Webb & Sons English cameo and more. “There are over 2,000 photos featured for this amazing auction so plan to view them online or join us in person,” Jason Woody of Woody Auction said.
Signed Galle French cameo art glass vases are always a hit with collectors. Up for bid will be a rare blown mold example in white, yellow and green tones, having a green cameo carved vine and blossom décor 9-3/4 inches tall; and another with blown mold cherry branch décor and yellow and white ground with finely cameo carved cranberry overlay. Both are just beautiful.
Two English cameo art glass cologne bottles signed Thomas Webb and Sons should get paddles wagging. One is square form, yellow ground with cranberry and white cameo carved floral vine décor, plus a glass stopper with embossed sterling flip lid showing British hallmarks dating to 1904; the other is frosted with white cameo carved overlay of a nice lattice and floral design.
An A. Walter Nancy pate-de-verre French art glass bowl with beautiful design, featuring panels of pinecones and beetles and wonderful colors of yellow, blue and green is double signed “A. Walter Nancy” and “Henri Berge.” Also offered will be a superb footed bowl signed “L.C. Tiffany,” having a clear crystal ribbed optic with green opaque leaf and pink blossom décor.

Also up for bid will be an unmarked Royal Flemish by Mt. Washington art glass vase with a beautifully segmented background with griffin and dragon enamel décor, 10 inches tall.
Lamps will be led by a beautiful Pairpoint table lamp with a colorful reverse painted sailboat scenic décor on the “Springfield” shaped shade, plus a chipped ice exterior, set on a “Pairpoint C3066” marked base. Returning to vases, offered will be a signed, high-quality “L.C. Tiffany” art glass vase, fiery bright Samian red with silver vertical decorated lines, 7-1/2 inches tall.
A pink agata art glass pitcher by New England features exceptional mottling with a ribbed and decorated applied handle, 6-1/4 inches tall. Also sold will be a Mt.
