I will do my best to publish a new post every Monday.
Business continues to be good, with sales of Tiffany lamps and French glass leading the way. Following are few of the more notable sales.
I sold the lovely Tiffany Studios 14″ diameter Turtleback table lamp pictured above. I also sold a killer 20″ diameter Acorn table lamp but I don’t have any photos yet. It was so special I will devote an entire blog post to it.
I’ve always loved Daum Nancy’s broken egg shape. Most of them don’t have a foot, but the variation pictured above does. It’s special because of both the shape and the adorable ducklings. The gilding on the rim and foot puts a cherry on the cake.
Gallé’s work from the 19th century was totally different than his 20th century work, where acid-etching became the main technique. The fabulous example above is a real rarity. It’s decorated with two gorgeous, gilded and enameled, stylized dragonflies. The blue-green waves are internal between layers of glass. Look at the background where you can see acid-etched starbursts. Then look closely at the foot where you can see a band of light brown and white dragonflies painted around the circumference. Wait. I’m not finished. Did you notice the fabulous shape with a bent neck and an applied handle? Hold on, there’s more. It’s got a great, original ram’s head stopper. It’s one of the coolest pieces of early Gallé glass that I’ve ever sold.
This week is the week where I’ll spend some time photographing and listing some of my recent purchases. Please take the time to check it out.
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.
