A rare Daum Nancy Rain cup and saucer sold well at a French auction, June 6, 2019

I am now publishing once a week, on Monday.


Daum Nancy Rain cup and saucer

I tried to buy a small, beautiful Daum Nancy cup and saucer in the Rain pattern at a French auction on June 6, 2019, but it was not meant to be. Personally I’ve never seen the Rain pattern on a cup and saucer, so it was quite rare (and probably part of a larger set when new). It had strong color and contrast, with a lot of pink in the background. It sold for €7,296 ($8,225), including buyer’s premium, against a pre-sale estimate of €700 – €1,200. That was a fine price for a collector, but not a dealer.


No shows until the Labor Day weekend, when we’ll exhibit at the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, one of the best shows of the year. In the meantime, we’re still very much in business. Please email or call to buy, sell or trade.

I listed some of the new items on my website and will list more every week. Click Philip Chasen Antiques to take a look. I will make every effort to actively list new items as often as time permits. I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
