Cottone Auctions held a Fine Art & Antiques sale yesterday, March 23, 2019. Included in the sale was a nice selection of Tiffany Studios lamps and glass and one very nice Daum Nancy vase. Following is a review of those items.
A Tiffany Studios 22″ diameter Bamboo table lamp, lot #55, sold a little below its estimate of $75,000 – $125,000, realizing $85,550, including buyer’s premium. The result appeared weak, as bamboo lamps have sold for considerably more at the major NYC auction houses.
A very nice Tiffany Studios 9″ Favrile Cypriote vase, lot #58, sold for a good price, within its estimate of $20,000 – $40,000, realizing $36,580, including buyer’s premium.
Other Tiffany Studios objects did well. A very fine 7″ deep blue Favrile lamp sold for $16,520 (lot #59); an unusual 14″ diameter Arrowroot table lamp sold for $61,950 (lot #60); and a red Art Deco desk set sold for $15,930 (lot #70).
There was only one Daum Nancy vase in the sale, but it was a good one — a nice Fall scenic, 9¾” tall. It sold within its estimated range of $7,000 – $10,000, realizing $10,620, including buyer’s premium. Unfortunately I was unprepared to bid at the auction because we had just returned from vacation, but I probably would not have bought this vase as the price was a bit too high for a dealer.

The dates for our next show, The Original Miami Beach Antique Show, have changed dramatically this year (and only this year). The new dates are just after the new year, January 4-8, 2020. That means the dealers will have to travel to Miami on or about New Year’s Day to arrive in time to set up the show. It also means that there will be no Airport show this year because it always precedes the Beach show and nobody is interested in a December show. Luckily everything will return to normal in 2021. In the meantime, we’re still very much in business, so please email or call to buy, sell or trade.
