Wave Crest, Royal Flemish, Mt. Washington, art glass and more at Woody Auction on Saturday, March 14
Woody Auction's first live auction of 2020 has rapidly developed into a major, must-attend event for collectors. Nearly 500 quality lots, including furniture items, will be offered to the highest bidder without reserve on Saturday, March 14th.
By: Woody Auction
The sale will be headlined by the Mr. and Mrs. Whitney Newland collection of Wave Crest and other C.F. Monroe pieces; the Blattner collection of biscuit jars, including Royal Flemish and Mt. Washington items of the highest quality; the late Betty and Bob Sisk collection out of Tennessee; and incredible pieces of art glass, featuring the finest Galle marquetry vase Woody Auction has ever sold.
"I am really excited about this particular auction with highlights from across the country being featured throughout,"
The Galle vase is marqueterie de verre, a glass-making technique first developed by Emile Galle in which colored pieces of semi-molten glass are set into the body of the glass vessel before it hardens. The circa 1900 vase, 17 ¾ inches tall, is magnificent in form, boasting a multiple carved crocus design and exquisite color and quality. It's nearly identical to a vase featured in Garner's book on Emile Galle.
Fans of Wave Crest will be drawn to a wall plaque showing a scene of a woman surrounded by flowers with a cobalt blue border, the original backing and mounted to an elaborate 16 ½ inch by 12 inch gilt frame; and an unmarked dresser box, crown mold, cobalt blue and white with pink floral décor and tapestry design highlights, gilt metal feet, with the original lining and key, 6 ¾ inches by 7 ½ inches.
