DOUGLASS, Kan. - Nov. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- A gorgeous pair of early 20th century signed Galle French cameo art glass pieces, one a lamp and the other a vase, sold for a combined $133,750 in the Part 1 auction of the lifetime Ron Blessing estate collection – an amazing accumulation of quality Victorian antiques, French cameo art glass, period American furniture and other items – held live and online October 29th by Woody Auction.

The 30-inch-tall Galle table lamp, the auction's top lot, was produced around 1920 and featured a beautiful yellow ground with blue/amethyst cameo carved Japanese chrysanthemum overlay and butterfly highlights. It was a magnificent representation of the finest quality and the crowd of about 80 people burst into applause when the final gavel came down at $93,500 (including buyer's premium).

The circa 1910 Galle cameo art glass vase, 14 inches tall, boasted a lovely ice blue ground with white cameo carved overlay featuring 16 seagulls in flight over ocean waves. The vase had been advertised as a "must-see", with "the finest detail available." Bidders evidently agreed, as the piece found a new home for $40,250, good for runner-up top achiever of the over 300 lots that came up for bid that day.

The live auction was held in the Woody Auction hall located at 130 East Third Street, Douglass. Online bidding was via LiveAuctioneers.com.

Following are additional highlights from the auction, which attracted 24 phone bidders and 12 absentee bidders in addition to the in-person crowd and very brisk online participation. All prices include the buyer's premium.

Third place went to a turn-of-the-century signed Daum Nancy French cameo art glass pillow vase, 5 inches tall, having pink and green mottled ground with excellent cameo carved relief of a wild floral scene featuring dandelions, clover and daisy décor. The original Paris jeweler's label was still on the base of the vase, which finished at $21,850.

A rare, museum-quality, two-piece yellow opaque art glass urn, signed Moser, 38 inches tall, featured an extensive and colorful enamel leaf décor and applied acorn highlights ($17,000). The upper section showed a highly detailed enameled scene of two children lighting a black powder pistol while a tavern owner looked on. "This was one of the finest pieces of Moser art glass we've ever sold," Woody said.
