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.
DuMouchelle’s held its March auction on the weekend of March 10-12, 2017. Included in the Saturday portion of the sale was a beautiful Tiffany Favrile paperweight vase, lot #1010. I was bidding on the telephone, but barely had a chance to open my mouth when the bidding flew past me. Estimated to sell for $3,000 – $5,000, it soared to $37,200, including buyer’s premium. I was left in the dust.
This was a beautiful example that appeared to be in superior condition, but I was still surprised at the final price. I thought the retail value was $15,000 – $20,000. Apparently the successful bidder disagreed with me.
We haven’t exhibited in the greater Detroit area in over 10 years, but at the encouragement of a fellow dealer, we’ve decided to give it another shot. I enjoyed doing the show years ago and hope that business is good so we can add it to our regular schedule. The show opens with a preview party on Friday, April 21st and continues until Sunday, April 23rd at 5 PM.
I recently listed about 15 new items on my website and I’ll be listing more in the near future. Please check my site as often as you can.
