Here’s a preview of my booth in Miami starting this Friday, January 22, 2016

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


miami-airport-1-2016(2)The Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show, The Airport Show, will open to the public this Friday, January 22, 2016 at noon. We’re bringing such a huge selection of fantastic merchandise that we had to leave some items home because the truck was chockablock full.

We'll have this wonderful Gallé floral lamp at the show

Sales of French glass have been great for the last few years, so I’m bringing a really powerful selection of Daum Nancy, Gallé and Argy-Rousseau items. If French glass interests you, you’ll want to see what I have.

Fair results for Bonham’s New York The Artistry of Tiffany sale, December 17, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


Bonham’s New York held their The Artistry of Tiffany sale on December 17, 2015, with total sales of $820,000 for the very small 25-lot auction. 8 lots did not sell, which worked out to an average of $48,235 for each of the 17 sold lots, well below the results of both Christie’s and Sotheby’s.

Tiffany Studios 16

Tiffany Studios 16″ diameter Snowball table lamp, Bonham’s lot #8

Tiffany Studios 18" diameter Peony table lamp, Bonham's lot #15

Tiffany Studios 18″ diameter Peony table lamp, Bonham’s lot #15

Two Tiffany Studios’ lamps tied for best results at $137,000 each, including buyer’s premium — lot 8, a 16″ diameter Snowball, and lot 15, an 18″ diameter Peony.

Tiffany Favrile Aquamarine vase, Bonham's lot #18

Tiffany Favrile Aquamarine vase, Bonham’s lot #18

The top glass lot was #18, a Tiffany Aquamarine vase, made to depict aquatic subject matter. Aquamarine vases are heavy, with thick glass containing embedded glass objects, like a glass paperweight. Lot #18 contained embedded water lilies and was a nice size at 10″ tall. It sold within its pre-sale estimate of $60,000 – $80,000, realizing $81,250, including buyer’s premium.

Fair results for the Tiffany portion of Christie’s Design sale, December 18, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


Christie’s New York held their Design sale on December 18, 2015 with total sales of $5,169,125 for the 152-lot auction. The first 36 lots of the sale were Tiffany Studios items. 10 of those failed to sell, which worked out to a total of $1,378,500 for the Tiffany, for an average of $53,019 for the 26 sold lots, considerably below the results of Sotheby’s Tiffany sale two days earlier.

Tiffany Studios 22" Peony table lamp, Christie's lot #318

Tiffany Studios 22″ Peony table lamp, Christie’s lot #318

Top lot of the Tiffany portion of the sale was #318, a Tiffany Studios 22″ diameter Peony table lamp, with a rare Favrile glass ball base. It sold below its pre-sale estimate of $180,000 – $240,000, realizing $173,000, including buyer’s premium.

Tiffany Favrile blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase, Christie's lot #311

Tiffany Favrile blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase, Christie’s lot #311

Oops on my prediction that the Christie’s blue Favrile Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase would bring less money than the example at Sotheby’s. Christie’s Jack, lot #311, sold for an incredible $161,000, including buyer’s premium, against a pre-sale estimate of $80,000 – $120,000. That was $42,250 more than the $118,750 spent on the Sotheby’s example. I thought the color on the Sotheby’s example was much better than Christie’s, but Christie’s example was bigger by 2″, 21¼” versus 19¼”. That worked out to $21,125 per extra inch. Whew!

Rare Tiffany Studios inkwell, Christie's lot #317

Tiffany Studios turtleback inkwell, Nadeau's Auction,  October, 30, 2010

Tiffany Studios turtleback inkwell, Nadeau’s Auction, October, 30, 2010

Lot #317 was a rare Tiffany Studios Turtleback triple inkwell. It also sold below its estimate of $30,000 – $50,000, realizing $25,000, including buyer’s premium. This is only the second time I’ve seen this inkwell come up for sale at auction. A far better example sold at Nadeau’s Auction Gallery, Windsor, Connecticut, on October, 30, 2010, for $37,500. It had three distinct colors, red, blue and green and a much better patina. It’s my understanding that the dealer who bought it subsequently sold it for $75,000.

Smokin’ results at Sotheby’s Tiffany Dreaming in Glass sale, December 16, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


I don’t know what they were smoking at Sotheby’s Tiffany Dreaming in Glass sale yesterday, December 16, 2015, but bidders were in a fine mood. Sales totaled $7,679,250 for the small 59-lot auction. 8 lots failed to sell, but that worked out to a very impressive average of $150,573 for the other 51 sold lots.

Tiffany Dragonfly table lamp, Sotheby's lot #211

Tiffany Dragonfly table lamp, Sotheby’s lot #211

Top lot of the sale was #211, a Tiffany Studios 22″ diameter Dragonfly table lamp, descended in the family of Andrew Carnegie. Provenance doesn’t get better, which showed in the results. It flew past the estimate of $250,000 — $350,000 to realize a truly remarkable $2,110,000, including buyer’s premium. Wow!

Tiffany Studios Pebble lamp, Sotheby's lot #244

Tiffany Studios Pebble lamp, Sotheby’s lot #244

The second highest lot was another lamp, a relatively small, but rare, Tiffany Studios Pebble design, made with real pebbles. It wasn’t my cup of tea, so I wouldn’t have even bid the low estimate. But the bidders didn’t ask me first. They were hot to trot and shelled out 760,000 bananas, against a pre-sale estimate of $200,000 — $300,000.

Tiffany Favrile blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase, Sotheby's lot #223

Tiffany Favrile blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase, Sotheby’s lot #223

The top Tiffany Favrile glass lot of the sale was #223, a gorgeous blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase. I wonder if this is the vase that I bought together with another dealer about 35 years ago. It looked really familiar. It sold for $118,750, well above the pre-sale estimate of $50,000 — $80,000. Christie’s is going to sell another blue Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase this Friday, but I don’t think it’s as pretty. It should sell for less than this one.

Julia’s held one of their best ever Important Rare Lamps, Glass & Fine Jewelry auctions this past Wednesday, November 18, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


James D. Julia, Inc. held their semi-annual Important Rare Lamps, Glass & Fine Jewelry auction this past Wednesday, November 18, 2015, with approximately $2.4 million in sales — one of their best ever for the division. The sale included five private collections of high quality goods, some with no reserves. As I’ve noted many times in the past, nothing makes for a better auction than three key ingredients — 1. fresh-to-the-market items; 2. high quality; 3. no or low reserves. It’s like fresh meat to the lions and these lions were hungry.

Important Gallé marquetry vase, Julia lot #1130

Important Gallé marquetry vase, Julia lot #1130

French glass did extremely well, with some ultra-high quality items in the mix. Lot 1130, a gorgeous Gallé marquetry vase in the original box, was the best item of the French glass. Estimated to sell for $15,000 – $20,000, it realized $53,325, including buyer’s premium.

Rare Le Verre Francais cat vase,  Julia lot #1611

Rare Le Verre Francais cat vase, Julia lot #1611

Surprisingly, a nice collection of Le Verre Francais vases and lamps also did well at the end of the sale. The Le Verre market has been soft for a while, so it was nice to see new interest. Lot #1611, a rare, large (23¼”) cat vase, was the best of the group. It sold for $10,665, against a pre-sale estimate of $4,000 – $6,000.

Loetz Phaenomen vase, Julia lot #1143

Loetz Phaenomen vase, Julia lot #1143

The selection of Loetz glass was strong and so were the prices. A large, 12″ Loetz Phaenomen vase, estimated to sell for $3,000 – $5,000, sold for five times it’s high estimate, realizing $29,625, including buyer’s premium.

Tiffany Favrile Cypriote vase, Julia lot #1108

Tiffany Favrile Cypriote vase, Julia lot #1108

The selection of Tiffany Favrile glass was also strong, with some vases selling at considerable premiums over their pre-sale estimates. Lot #1108 was a gorgeous Cypriote miniature example. It sold for many times it’s estimate of $800-1,200, realizing $11,257.50.

Tiffany Studios Koi Fish lamp, Julia lot #1202

Tiffany Studios Koi Fish lamp, Julia lot #1202

The best Tiffany Studios lamp in the sale did well. Lot #1202 was a rare Koi fish example, consigned by a Japanese national. Previously this exact lamp had sold at Christie’s in March, 1990, for $104,500. After the seven phone bidders were done, it went out the door for $106,650, against a pre-sale estimate of $50,000-100,000.

Green R. Lalique Sauterelles vase, Grogan lot #192

Green R. Lalique Sauterelles vase, Grogan lot #192

Grogan & Company, Boston, MA, held The September Auction on Sep 27, 2015. Included in the sale was lot #192: an R. Lalique Sauterelles vase in green. The low estimate of $3,000 – $5,000 made it seem like there was a chance I could buy it. Occasionally something falls through the cracks, and I’ll be there to catch it. Not this time! The vase sold for $15,860, including buyer’s premium.

Daum Fall scenic vase, Fontaine lot #1

Daum Fall scenic vase, Fontaine lot #1

Fontaine’s Auction Gallery held a nice general sale this past Saturday, October 3, 2015. We drove all the way to Pittsfield, MA, just to preview the sale as there were quite a few lots I wanted to purchase. In general, the results were strong, so we wound up buying very few items. All the best ones sold for more than we were willing to pay, starting with lot #1, a beautiful, but small (6″), Daum Nancy scenic vase, decorated by Daum’s best artist, “B.S.”. Estimated to sell for $800 – $1,200, it realized $8,470, including buyer’s premium — too much for a dealer, but not a collector.

Tiffany Favrile red decorated vase, Fontaine lot #43

Tiffany Favrile red decorated vase, Fontaine lot #43

I also wanted to buy a small (3¼”), but very nice, decorated red Tiffany Favrile vase, Fontaine lot #43. It also went too high for me, but not a collector — $6,957.50, against a pre-sale estimate of $4,000 – $6,000.

Rare Tiffany red decorated Favrile perfume bottle, Fontaine lot #67

Rare Tiffany red decorated Favrile perfume bottle, Fontaine lot #67

Lot #67 generated even more excitement. It was a very rare Tiffany Favrile red decorated perfume bottle, 6½” tall. Tiffany didn’t make many perfume bottles, let alone decorated red. The problem for me was that it only had a Tiffany paper label, with no signature on the glass. Most of my clients insist on a signature on the glass, so I took a pass on this lot. Well guess what? Fontaine’s didn’t need me. It sold for $16,940, against a pre-sale estimate of $4,000 – $6,000.

winnetka-10-2015Our next show will be at the Winnetka Community House in Winnetka, IL, November 6-8, 2015. We used to exhibit at shows in the greater Chicago area 4-6 times yearly. Most of them have disappeared, so we now only exhibit in Chicago twice a year, once in the fall in Winnetka and once in the spring in Glencoe at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Too bad, because we like Chicago and have lots of friends and clients. We’re really looking forward to seeing you at the show, so please put the dates in your calendar.

Handel and Tiffany lamps sell at Julia’s Summer Fine Art, Asian, & Antiques Auction, August 27, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


James D. Julia, Inc. held a 4-day Summer Fine Art, Asian, & Antiques Auction, August 25-28, 2015. I’m only reporting on the lots that interest me, but you can view the entire sale by clicking the link in the fifth paragraph below. For this auction it was lot #3061, a Handel lamp, and #3327, a Tiffany Favrile lamp.

Handel 18" diameter scenic table lamp, Julia lot #3061

Handel 18″ diameter scenic table lamp, Julia lot #3061

Lot #3061 was a rare and really beautiful 18″ diameter scenic table lamp with a rocky stream and tree trunk base. It sold for $10,665, including buyer’s premium, against a pre-sale estimate of $3,000 – $5,000. At one time, this was a $25,000 lamp, but since I’m not sure of today’s price, I dropped out as the underbidder. Reverse-painted lamps are difficult to photograph, but I know from experience that it’s much more beautiful in person.

Wheel-carved Tiffany Favrile lamp, Julia lot #3327

Wheel-carved Tiffany Favrile lamp, Julia lot #3327

Lot #3327 was an interesting Tiffany Favrile table lamp, with two unusual features. First the base was matching glass (Favrile shades usually have bronze bases). Secondly the decoration on the shade was completely wheel-carved (engraved) by hand when the shade was cold. Favrile lamps are more commonly decorated by the gaffer when molten, frequently with wave decoration. It did have a couple of flaws — some original folds on the underside and an unsoldered arm on the fitter (which is easy to fix). Estimated to sell for $4,000 – $6,000, it realized $8,887.50, including buyer’s premium.

nyc-big-flea-9-2015Our next show will be The Big Flea Market at Pier 94 in New York City, September 26-27. Last year was the first time for this show and it was good. The attendees were completely different than the established Pier Antique Show that takes place in November and March each year, making it a totally different experience.

Important Daum Nancy Impressionist vase

Important Daum Nancy Impressionist vase

We haven’t exhibited at any shows since the Chicago Botanic Garden in mid-April, so I’ve directed a lot of my energy to buying for the summer shows, the Denver World Wide Antique Show, July 24-26, 2015, and the Baltimore Summer Antiques Fair, August 20-23, 2015. We were successful both in France and in the US, so here are a few of the newest and most interesting purchases. I’ll be spending time this week and next adding as many new items to my website as possible. Keep checking back.

Fine, rare Tiffany Favrile red vase

Fine, rare Tiffany Favrile red vase

I bought a pair of rare and very desirable 7″ Tiffany red vases. I’ve known where they were for the last couple of years, but the dealer who owned them couldn’t sell them, because he insisted on selling them as a pair. The Tiffany numbers are very close to each other, indicating they were probably made on the same day. I have no problem selling them individually or as a pair. It’s not like a pair of candlesticks that were meant to stay together. On any given day, Tiffany produced a run of consecutively numbered vases that were meant to be sold individually. These red vases are no different.

Fantastic Austrian bronze novelty lamp

Fantastic Austrian bronze novelty lamp

I just bought this incredible Austrian bronze novelty lamp, 11½” tall. It was probably designed by Bergman, because this is the quality he created. The condition is superb, with original colored glass windows. Haven’t had anything this wonderful in Austrian bronze in quite some time.

Fine Daum Nancy Peacock Feather vase

Fine Daum Nancy Peacock Feather vase

Daum Peacock Feather vases are deceptively sophisticated. Most of the work on the vase is standard acid-etching, but not the centers of the feathers. The light blue and dark blue glass was applied when the glass was molten, then pressed into the vase on the marver. The process is called padding, which makes for special vases. I get one or two Peacock Feather vases yearly and they sell very quickly. This example is almost 12″ tall. (The vase is not in yet, so please excuse the quality of the photo. I’ll post a better one after the vase has arrived).

There’s lots more coming in in the next couple of weeks, including two important Daum Nancy Blackbird vases, two large Tiffany Favrile Jack-in-the-Pulpit vases, two Gallé Magnolia vases and lots more. Keep checking my site, as I will be updating it daily.

Good results for Tiffany Studios lamps at Christie’s Design sale, June 10, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


Christie’s New York held their Design sale yesterday, June 10, 2015, with total sales of $7,687,750 for the 213 lots offered. Included in the sale were several Tiffany Studios lamps that sold well as a group.

Tiffany Studios 22" diameter Peony floor lamp, Christie's lot #14

Tiffany Studios 22″ diameter Peony floor lamp, Christie’s lot #14

The top lot of the Tiffany lamps was #14, a 22″ diameter Peony floor lamp that sold for $161,000, against a pre-sale estimate of $80,000 – $120,000.

Tiffany Studios 20" diameter Dragonfly table lamp, Christie's lot #11

Tiffany Studios 20″ diameter Dragonfly table lamp, Christie’s lot #11

Flying well past its pre-sale estimate of $60,000 – $80,000 was an unusual 20″ Dragonfly table lamp, Christie’s lot #11. It had nicely colored dragonflies against a pastel sky-blue, mottled background, with non-jeweled eyes, two amber geometric bands near the rim and amber jewels in the background. The shade rested on a twisted vine base, all with an original gold doré finish. I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not, but I was going to buy it if the price were low. Alas, that wasn’t the case. It realized $125,000.

All prices include the buyer’s premium.

Good results at Sotheby’s The Warshawsky Collection: Masterworks of Tiffany and Prewar Design sale, May 19, 2015

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


On May 19, 2015, Sotheby’s New York sold a one-owner collection, The Warshawsky Collection: Masterworks of Tiffany and Prewar Design, which included 90 lots of outstanding Tiffany Studios objects. Only 2 of the 90 lots failed to sell. Sales totaled $7,951,125 for the 138 lots offered.

Tiffany Studios Oriental Poppy floor lamp, Sotheby's lot #36

Tiffany Studios Oriental Poppy floor lamp, Sotheby’s lot #36

The top lot of the sale was #36, a beautiful Oriental Poppy floor lamp. It topped $1 million, with a final sale price of $1,066,000, including buyer’s premium, against a pre-sale estimate of $400,000 – $600,000.

This rare Tiffany Studios Peacock frame, Sotheby’s lot #2, sold for $40,000, against a pre-sale estimate of $5,000 - $7,000

This rare Tiffany Studios Peacock frame, Sotheby’s lot #2, sold for $40,000, against a pre-sale estimate of $5,000 – $7,000

The sale started strongly, with frames and lamp screens selling for ridiculously high prices. Then reality set in and the sale lost a little steam, with some lots selling at or below their low estimates.

Tiffany Studios Grapevine frame, Sotheby's lot #85

Tiffany Studios Grapevine frame, Sotheby’s lot #85

A bizarre result was the sale of a medium-sized Tiffany Grapevine frame, lot #85, a common frame that I ordinarily sell for $2,500 – $3,500. It sold for the extraordinary price of $22,500, against a pre-sale estimate of $1,200 – $1,800. Whaaattt??? Some people have more cents than sense. Where are those clients when I need them?

Tiffany Studios advertising sign, Sotheby's lot #87

Tiffany Studios advertising sign, Sotheby’s lot #87

One of the more amusing results came with the sale of an original Tiffany Studios bronze advertising plaque. It brought an incredible $20,000, against a pre-sale estimate of $800 – $1,200.
