"This sale also features our largest ever grouping of Santa Claus items to sell at one public auction," said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. "RS Prussia, along with an assortment of other antiques, are sure to grab bidders' attention. There are over 400 lots in total – all selling at public auction without reserve. There's also no buyer's premium for those attending in person when paying by cash or check."
Royal Bayreuth Santa items from the Gollmar estate will be led by a full-figure wall pocket red Santa marked Royal Bayreuth with the original label, 9 inches tall; and a green Santa lemonade pitcher with an attached handle marked Royal Bayreuth, 7 ¼ inches tall. These two lots in particular are expected to attract keen bidder interest because they appeal to collectors of both Santa Claus and Royal Bayreuth.
Other pieces from the Gollmar collection include a cheetah creamer marked Royal Bayreuth, 3 inches tall; a Mt. Washington decorated Burmese art glass vase with enamel rose décor and a poem by Thomas Hood, 12 inches tall; a great pair of unmarked Royal Bayreuth fox candlestick holders, 6 ¼ inches tall, with the foxes depicted looking over their left shoulder; plus many other desirable items.
Pickard China is a family owned and operated porcelain decorating and manufacturing company based in Antioch, Ill. The company was founded in 1893 and continues to produce ceramic tableware and art ware today. Its sales are primarily in fine china dinnerware, decorative accessories and collectibles and it ranks among the finest china made anywhere in the world. Like Royal Bayreuth, it is hugely popular.
