"This auction has developed over nearly twelve months of accepting collections from around the country and the world," declared Jason Woody of Woody Auction. "Some had just two or three items, while others had 70-80 items."
Exquisite collections in the sale include the Putzka and Atzenhoffer collections out of Texas, the Ros King collection out of the United Kingdom, and private collections out of Ohio and Florida. As with every Woody Auction event, all lots will be offered to the public to the highest bidder without reserve. Buyers present at the sale will enjoy a zero percent buyer's premium when paying by cash or check.
The expected top lot of the auction is the round American Brilliant Cut Glass tray in the Hawkes Panel pattern, 16 inches in diameter and weighing over 11 ½ pounds. "This is the finest Hawkes Panel tray it has ever been my privilege to sell," Mr. Woody remarked. The tray came out of the Florida collection.
Another round American Brilliant Cut Glass tray by Hawkes, this one in the Willow pattern (aka the Lattice and Rosette pattern) is also expected to do well. The tray, 13 inches in diameter, is of exceptional quality and is very rare. It's one of several pieces in the sale from the Ros King collection.
Ros King inherited his collection from his father, who was a British analytical chemist and engineer during World War II. He also worked with people from the U.S. on the effects of VX and sarin gas, as used in German concentration camps, trying to find an antidote in case they were used as chemical weapons. A member of the American Diplomatic Corps stationed in Manchester presented him with the Lattice and Rosette items before his return to the States.
A preview will be held on Friday, November 11th, from 1-5 Central time in the Douglass auction hall. People can register and bid online now, at www.liveauctioneers.com/
