I am now publishing once a week, on Monday.
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.
