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

I will do my best to publish every 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 May when we’ll exhibit at the Chicago Antiques + Art + Design show at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. It’s a beautiful show in a wonderful venue. The dates are May 14-17, 2020. So put it on your calendar and make plans to visit. You’ll thank me.
