News-Antique.com - Sep 19,2011 - (DOUGLASS, Kan.) – A pair of auctions with crossover appeal are planned for Oct. 1 and Oct. 22 by Woody Auction. The first, featuring the antique collection of Eugene Sandler of Florida, will boast outstanding examples of Royal Flemish, Crown Milano, other quality art glass and biscuit jars. It will be held Oct. 1 at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, Mo.
The second auction, on Oct. 22, will have over 400 lots of Royal Bayreuth, Galle vases and cameo glass, Sabino figurines, brides baskets, pickle castors, biscuit jars, Rose Medallion, art glass and more. It will be held in the 4H Hall of the Sedgwick County Extension Center in Wichita, Kan. Both events are slated for Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m., with Friday previews.
Like all other Woody Auctions, every item in both sales will be offered without reserve (everything sells, regardless of price). “These auctions are similar yet different,” remarked Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “The first is an exceptional single-owner lifetime collection, while the second contains items culled from many estates and collections. Both should do quite well.”
Three lots expected to generate much bidder buzz in the Oct. 1 auction are an extremely rare 5 ½ inch plated amberina milk pitcher by the New England Glass Company, in fantastic condition; an equally rare 4 ½ inch signed Daum Nancy diamond-shaped cameo art glass vase with ice blue, green and yellow tones and lovely winter scene blackbird décor; and a rare 6 ½ inch Loetz Federzichnung art glass vase with a brown background and ‘Octopus’ pattern design.
Royal Flemish pieces will include an extra fine 11 ¾ inch unmarked handled ewer with three colored segments, strong gold and graphic showing a rampant lion holding a lance and banner crest; and a rare 10 ¼ inch marked oval handled ewer with blue and pink floral highlights, strong gold and graphics of a griffin and cherub fighting and a swirled serpent.
Biscuit jars will feature a unique 7-inch marked Locke Worcester figural jar with cream and pink tones in the shape of a flour sack with embossed wheat design, and a fancy silverplate lid with mouse finial; and a 7 ½ inch pink satin embossed drape mold art glass jar with enamel branch and blossom décor and silverplate lid and bail. The piece is attributed to Mt. Washington.
Two pieces certified Mt. Washington art glass are a nice 4 ¾ inch zipper mold covered jar in white and orange tones with gold floral décor, applied jewel highlights, embossed silverplate lid and bail and turtle finial; and an exceedingly rare 7-inch egg-shaped biscuit jar having a dark maroon background with large poppy décor and silverplate lid and bail.
Galle examples will feature a 7-inch three-color cameo cut scented oil lamp with yellow, white and lavender tones, with a floral décor and gilt metal reticulated top; a signed three-color cameo cut squat vase with sunset, tree and swallow décor; and a signed two-handled loving cup, clear with heavy green
