$14,000. Sara Sax also showed her popularity as a Rookwood designer with a vellum glaze landscape that finished at $10,000.
Carl Schmidt was well represented with two oil on board paintings, both of “Venetian Sailboats,” that brought $3,750 and $3,250 respectively.
Fraunfelter/Royal Rochester also showed strong sales, especially the Modernistic patterns, topping estimates and bringing strong prices for a waffle service ($1,300), a tea service ($1,750), and two coffee services ($1,850 and $1,750, respectively).
Some of the most surprising Roseville sales came not from the best pieces, but rather from pieces that brought as much as double and triple their pre-sale estimates. A Wincraft dealer sign went for $2,100 and a large double-handled Futura vase brought $3,600.
Buffalo Pottery also showed strength with several surprise lots, including Emerald Deldare Ware pieces, a chamber stick and a vase that brought $3,000 and $3,200 respectively.
Prices presented here do not include the 15% buyer’s premium.
