DOUGLASS, Kan. - Aug. 27, 2023 - PRLog -- The outstanding estate collection of David and Ann Sidlinger of North Carolina, mostly gorgeous lamps and fine furniture pieces, will come up for bid on Saturday, September 23rd, at 9:30 am Central time, by Woody Auction, online and live in the Douglass auction hall located at 130 East Third Street. All of the 381 lots will be sold to the highest bidder, absolute, with no reserves.

An automated online auction slated for the day prior – Friday, September 22nd, starting at 8 am Central time – will kick off the weekend of Sidlinger collection items. That sale will consist of 244 total lots.

"The Sidlingers' lamp collection features examples by makers like Pairpoint, Moe Bridges, Handel and others," said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. "It also features some of the finest American Brilliant Cut Glass lamps anywhere. The furniture beautifully illustrates their love of quality items."

Three items in the sale – a desk and two banquet lamps – could end up vying for top lot honors. The original Wooten desk is a Wells Fargo model and a fantastic example. It boasts two large barrel front doors with mail slot, a latching drop-down desk, over 50 drawers, a maple and walnut interior and ebony highlights. Measuring 69 inches by 40 inches by 29 inches, it should bring $10,000-$12,000.

Another noteworthy furniture item is the Eames mid-century lounge chair and ottoman set by Herman Miller, black leather with a 14-inch seat height (est. $1,000-$2,000). Herman Miller was the sole authorized manufacturer of furniture designs by Charles and Ray Eames, except for Europe and the Middle East. Mid-century designs by Eames are hugely popular with collectors and interior designers.

Bidders need to know that all large furniture items in the auction will not be in the Douglass auction hall and must be picked up near Greensboro, N.C., or shipped via professional shipper by Nov. 4th.

The American Brilliant Cut Glass banquet lamps include an outstanding quality Libbey example in the Ellsmere pattern, 37 inches tall, original kerosene, having five parts including a skirted base, long center column or stem, font, shade and modern replacement chimney (est. $8,000-$12,000); and an ABCG lamp in the Diamond and Star pattern, having a pattern cut skirted base, spiral cut stem cover, pattern cut font, pattern cut shade and pattern cut modern replacement chimney (est. $6,000-$10,000).
