Treadway Gallery, Cincinnati, Ohio, held a Spring 2019 Art+Design auction yesterday, April 7, 2019. Included in the sale was a collection of French cameo glass, as well as a number of Tiffany Studios’ items — the subject of today’s post.
The top Tiffany Studios item of the sale, lot #4, a 20″ diameter Daffodil table lamp, sold for $43,750, including buyer’s premium. The result was below the estimated price of $40,000 – $60,000.
The second-best performing Tiffany Studios lot in the sale was #31, a rare 6-light floor candelabrum. It too sold below its estimate, realizing $26,250, including buyer’s premium. Its estimate was $30,000-$40,000.
The French cameo glass, mostly from a single Los Angeles collection, fared better. I tried to buy lot #37, a beautiful Gallé wheel-carved Marine vase. Estimated to sell for $7,500 – $9,500, it realized $17,500, including buyer’s premium. I was the underbidder.
