A review of some recent sales

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


Business continues to be good with the most interest in the usual suspects; Tiffany lamps and French glass. Following are three recent sales.

Tiffany Studios 18″ diameter Turtleback table lamp

It’s been really tough buying good Tiffany Studios lamps. I can sell many more lamps than I can buy. So I consider myself lucky to have bought a superb 18″ diameter Turtleback table lamp with amazing color and mottling. The patina on the Mock Turtleback base is fantastic. The kicker is that the lamp was the personal property of Marcello Mastroianni. How cool is that? A great lamp with incredible provenance.

Tiffany Studios Turtleback swivel desk lamp

When I bought the Turtleback swivel desk pictured above, it was covered with over 100 years of grime. After two hours of careful cleaning, the results were great; the iridescence sparkled and the patina was outstanding.

Daum Nancy wheel-carved vase

Can you believe the quality of the Daum Nancy vase pictured above? It’s totally wheel-carved, decorated all the way around and gorgeous. I don’t get vases of this quality as often as I would like.

If you’ve got something good to sell, please offer it to me. I need quality items now, so I’m buying aggressively.


No shows until October 20, 2022, when we’ll exhibit at the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show. Two weeks later we’ll exhibit at the Antiques + Modernism Show in Winnetka, IL, starting on November 4, 2022.
