I will do my best to publish a new post every Monday.


Soulis Auctions, Lone Jack, MO, sold the Sawa Boulden Collection of French, Austrian and American Art Glass on February 20, 2022, with some excellent results, especially pâte-de-vere. Following is a review of a few highlights.

Almaric Walter pâte-de-verre Dragonfly tray, Soulis lot #600

One of the items I tried to buy was lot #600, a gorgeous, blue, moderately large Almaric Walter pâte-de-verre Dragonfly tray, 8¼” x 7″. Estimated to sell for $3,000 – $5,000, it realized $12,000, including buyer’s premium. That was a retail price that I couldn’t pay.

Daum Nancy Swan miniature vase, Soulis lot #623

I did manage to buy a wonderful Daum Nancy miniature Swan vase, probably because the main photo did not show the swan, but rather the back with only trees. It was the only item I bought. I was outbid on the other six that interested me.

Amalric Walter Mouse tray, Soulis lot #655

Lot #655 was another wonderful Walter pâte-de-verre item; a tray with a mouse. I loved it, but wouldn’t pay the final price of $7,800, including buyer’s premium. I didn’t think that I could make a profit at that level.
