DOUGLASS, Kan. - Feb. 13, 2024 - PRLog -- The outstanding antiques collection of Harold and Joeleen Passow of Iowa will come up for bid on Saturday, March 2nd, at 9:30 am Central time, by Woody Auction, online and live in the Douglass auction hall at 130 E. Third Street. Online bidding is via All 438 lots will be sold to the highest bidder without reserves.

An automated online-only sale of the items that didn't fit in Saturday's event will be held Friday, March 1st, at 8 am Central time.

"Harold and Joeleen Passow have been longtime collectors of some incredible genres of antiques through the years," said Jason Woody of Woody Auction.  "After recently celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary, they made the decision to sell their collection at public auction." An in-gallery preview will be held on Friday, March 1st, from 1-5 pm.

The Passow collection has a strong showing of Royal Bayreuth, R.S. Prussia, art glass, pottery, lamps, and furniture (which includes Belter, Meeks, and Alexander Roux items). There is no buyer's premium for those in attendance (when paying with cash or check). Furniture and large items must be picked up by a professional shipper or in person (in Douglass, Kansas) by Friday, March 15th.

One furniture lot by Joseph Meeks could easily end up being the overall top seller in the auction. It is a beautifully carved rosewood etagere of exceptional quality, with white marble, a base with two shelves, four shelves above, and having a shell, scroll and floral design. The etagere, measuring 94 ½ inches tall by 55 inches in width, would need to be picked up in person and has an estimate of $6,000-$10,000.

Another gorgeous furniture item by Meeks is a rosewood parlor table in the Rosalie pattern, having a marble turtle top and an elaborately carved centerpiece (est. $2,000-$4,000). Also, a pair of Belter rosewood parlor chairs in the Henry Clay pattern – a gent's armchair and a matching lady's chair, both with matching cream, orange and green embroidered floral upholstery – should bring $2,500-$5,000.

A tankard marked R.S. Prussia, 11 ¼ inches tall and in a rare tiger décor, with green ground, has an estimate of $3,000-$5,000; while an unmarked R.S. Prussia center bowl in the Carnation mold, 15 inches in diameter, and having a cobalt blue and light blue with pink and yellow rose décor, should bring $1,500-$3,500.
