DOUGLASS, Kan. - Dec. 13, 2022 - PRLog -- DOUGLASS, Kan. – Woody Auction specializes in Victorian and pre-1920s antiques, but the firm's real stock in trade is fine cut glass, which it has been offering at auction for years. This point was driven home over the course of 2022, when the company held four major cut glass auctions that all performed well and contributed to a highly successful year overall.

The first was a two-day American Brilliant Cut Glass ("ABCG") auction held March 4th and 5th that featured a pair of outstanding single-owner collections. Like nearly all Woody Auction sales, this one was held online and live in the Woody Auction hall located at 130 East 3rd Street in Douglass. And, per usual, all lots were sold to the highest bidder, without reserves.

Top lots included a signed Egginton pitcher in the Trellis pattern, 8 inches tall, a beautiful example that featured a triple-notched handle and hobstar base ($11,500); and an American Brilliant Cut Glass bowl of exceptional quality signed by Hawkes in the Imperial 2 pattern, 3 ½ inches by 8 inches with deep cutting, from the Lemon collection ($9,200).

The second was held on May 28th and featured a wonderful assortment of American Brilliant Cut Glass pieces, boasting a wide array of patterns and makers, many showcasing sterling silver. A standout piece was the ABCG punch bowl by Dorflinger in the Sultana pattern from the Kathy and the late Leigh Emmerson collection ($5,000).

Cut glass auction number three was an American & Brilliant Period Cut Glass auction held on September 10th. It featured the Joe Panico collection out of Ohio, developed over many decades and packed with patterns that included Aztec, Byzantine, Crystal City, Ellsmere, Herringbone, Orloff, Nautilus, Aberdeen and many others.

Woody Auction may have saved the best for last when it conducted a 400-lot antique glass auction on November 12th that featured Aztec goblets, Waldorf stems, an Isabella tankard and other fine pieces.

The expected top lot was a round American Brilliant Cut Glass tray in the Hawkes Panel pattern, 16 inches in diameter and weighing over 11 ½ pounds. It went for an astounding $115,500. Also sold was an ABCG pitcher, 11 ¾ inches tall, with cased cranberry/green cased overlay, a pillar and cane swirl design, ray cut base sterling silver spout and handle marked Gorham ($19,000).
