An antique auction representing the culmination of numerous collections from around the country and featuring art glass, Wave Crest and more will be held Saturday, October 14, 2023, by Woody Auction, online and live in the Douglass, Kansas auction hall located at 130 East Third Street, starting at 9:30 AM CT. All of the 363 lots will be sold to the highest bidder, absolute, with no reserves.

“Highlights in this auction include a great selection of lamps, French and English cameo glass, the finest pietre dure panel, some incredible Steuben dragon cameo vases, and a continuation of quality throughout the catalog,” Jason Woody of Woody Auction said. “Please note that there are a few items that must be picked up in person or shipped via a professional shipper within 14 days of the event.”

An automated online auction slated for the day prior – Friday, October 13, starting at 8 AM CT – will kick off the weekend of various quality antique items. That sale will consist of 244 total lots. Included in the online-only event will be such things as art glass, cut glass, porcelain and more. Over 900 items will be sold in two days at public auction to the highest bidder, absolute, no reserves.

Lamps in the October 14 auction will feature a French cameo art glass table lamp signed Daum Nancy boasting a beautiful winter scene cameo cut and enamel décor, 18 inches tall with the original fittings (est. $8,000-$12,000); and a Puffy reverse painted table lamp marked Pairpoint, 25 inches tall, with a lovely white ground with red roses and hummingbird design and Devonshire shade marked Pairpoint Corp. and the base also marked Pairpoint (est. $2,500-$4,000). The two-light lamp has been electrified.

Vases will be highlighted by an unmarked Steuben cameo cutback art glass vase, 11-1/2 inches tall, with a blue aurene over yellow jade ground and an incredible, must-see dragon design (est. $2,500-$5,000); and an exceptional Stevens & Williams vase, 12 inches tall, boasting a carved floral design with cranberry shading to yellow (est. $3,000-$4,500). The vase is attributed to glass artist Joshua Hodgetts.

Lalique of France in the 905 Ceylan design (also known as Huitperruches, or Eight Parrots), made circa 1924 in the rare smoke color, 9-1/2 inches tall, should go for $2,000-$3,000. In the American Brilliant Cut Glass category, a 13-3/4-inch diameter round tray with beautifully cut hobstar, vesica, cluster, nailhead diamond, strawberry diamond, star and fan motif, should hit $1,000-$1,600.

A pietre dure (decorative technique in which precious or semi-precious stones are inlaid into marble or other soft stone; it’s Italian for “hard stone”) mosaic slate plaque signed by Mario Montelatici (1894-1974), 15-3/4 inches by 10 inches, with an incredible Renaissance scenic décor, has an estimate of $2,500-$5,000. “This is the finest pietre dure panel we’ve ever offered,” Jason Woody remarked.
