“I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the Fricks, as they’ve attended many of our auctions over the years,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Now, they have determined it is time to offer their collection at public auction without reserve. Everything will sell, regardless of price. It is evident that Sue, especially, enjoyed collecting certain styles and colors of antiques.”
Tiffany pieces will include a rare 18-inch unmarked jack-in-the-pulpit vase with white, green and gold iridescent pulled feather design and 8 ¾ inch diameter face; and an 8 ¼ inch decorated art glass vase with green background and gold heart and vine décor. The base has a fake “LCT” mark and the original paper label. Overall, it has nice color and is in good condition.
Fans of brides’ baskets will not be disappointed. Examples will include a 10 inch by 14 inch pink cased melon-ribbed bowl with large enamel floral décor set on a Meriden figural silverplate frame with double rampart lions; and a 14 ¼ inch by 8 ½ inch strong cranberry glass bowl with dentil style edge, enamel highlights, and set on a Simpson Hall & Miller figural stand.
Another brides’ basket worth mentioning is a beautiful 14 ½ inch by 10 ½ inch pink satin herringbone bowl with crimped ruffled top, set on an ornate base with three cherubs. Also slated to change hands is a 12 ¾ inch Stevens and Williams cased peachblow-handled pitcher with applied amber feet and handle and applied floral décor. The pitcher is in very nice condition.
