Tiffany sells well at Skinner's 20th Century Sale

I know I’m harping on the same point, but LOW estimates bring interest and interest brings action and action brings results.

Cases in point. A Tiffany 18″ Peony table lamp on a rare Peacock base sold for $118,500, against an estimate of $70-90,000. To be completely fair, estimates are not the only concern for bidders. Everyone wants something that is estate fresh and this lamp descended in a Massachusetts family.

Case 2. A Tiffany Art Deco clock in blue, estimated at $600-800, sold for $4,148, several times its high estimate.

The rest of the Tiffany items in the sale mostly sold well, with common items bringing less and more interesting items more, as would be expected. A very nice 20″ Daffodil table lamp sold for $50,363, against an estimate of $50-60,000. A very common and not very desirable Tiffany Studios Zodiac paper rack did not sell against an estimate of $5-600, one of the very few Tiffany items not to sell.
