"Carol and Leslie Gould lived and worked in New York City when they met, she as an insurance executive and he a piano tuner and entrepreneur,"
Over the years, the couple came to know all of the top glass dealers as their collection grew. And it wasn't limited to just Moser; they also acquired other glass names as well, including Libbey Nash, Tiffany, Steuben, Charles Lotton and other contemporary makers. Upon Leslie's death, Carol retired to Cleveland, to be nearer to her family. Now, her entire collection will be offered.
A strong candidate for top lot of the auction is the circa 1930 Moser cranberry glass enameled lamp with domed shade enameled in gilding and applied with sculpted enamel flowers, raised on a baluster form glass base with sculpted enamel floral wreaths and swags, and art nouveau style cast white metal fittings, 25 inches tall (est. $4,000-$6,000)
A circa 1890-1900 Moser vase engraved with a tropical landscape of palm trees centered by a high relief sculpted enamel figure of a striding tiger and a parrot in flight above, 13 inches tall, should reach $1,200-$1,800;
A set of six Moser enameled glass wines with applied decoration in ruby glass, with faceted bowls on shaped stems and applied with relief molded grapes and leaves on the vine, each one 6 ¼ inches tall, should bring $2,000-$4,000.
