Important art glass auction slated for Dec. 11 in Wichita, Kan. Hundreds of pieces of rare and vintage art glass, consigned by several prominent collectors, will be sold at auction Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Sedgwick County Extension Center in Wichita, Kansas.
Competition should be fierce for a 19-inch solid jade figural group of an elderly man standing with five children climbing over him. The piece weighs nearly 40 lbs. Daum Nancy pieces will feature a 13-inch, 3-color cameo cut pedestal vase with dark silhouette tree and lake scenic background; and a 16-inch signed 5-color cameo cut vase with a floral blossom décor.
The Daum Nancy cameos are certain to get paddles wagging. Examples include a 2 ¼ inch miniature vase with white swirl background and springtime tree and field scenic décor; a 1 ½ inch signed miniature oval vase with amber background and fall season lake and tree scenic décor; and a 3-inch signed miniature stick vase, 4-color, with a nice lake and tree scenic décor.
Other Daum cameos will include a 1 ¾ inch signed oval vase with floral décor and white, lavender and green background; a 1 ¾ inch signed miniature vase with spring season décor; a 2-inch signed cut toothpick holder with white opaque background and Lily of the Valley scenic décor; a toothpick holder, with springtime lake and tree décor; a 1 5/8 inch signed oval vase with Venice boat scenic décor; and a 2-inch salt dip, white and green, with great floral blossom décor.
