DOUGLASS, KAN.- A stellar, two-day American Brilliant Cut Glass auction featuring more than ten sparkling cut glass lamps, ten gorgeous punch bowls, numerous unique and hard-to-find patterns, rare Amberina candelabras, fantastic cut to clear and more will be held March 22nd and 23rd by Woody Auction, online and in the Douglass auction hall at 130 East Third Street, starting at 9:30 am Central.

“Featured collections in this consignment sale include the late Barbara Pierce collection of Oregon, the lifetime collection of Walter and Marian Remke of Ohio, several pieces from the late Al Edmond collection of Iowa, and a couple of other exceptional private collections,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. As with every Woody Auction event, all lots in this sale are being offered without reserves.

Punch bowls will include a very rare two-part example featuring an exquisite heart-shaped design with hobstar, cane, nailhead diamond, zipper and fan motif, as well as three large hobstars with lapidary cut centers, possibly the finest punch bowl Woody Auction has sold in over 15 years; and an outstanding single piece bowl, signed Sinclair, having three alternating bands of hobstar chain and a punte motif.

Other lots to watch will feature a wonderful pair of mushroom shade table lamps in the El Tova pattern by Clark, 18 inches tall, with a full pattern cut base and electrified, each one having a single bulb; and a green cut to clear cider pitcher, 6 ¾ inches in height, with hobstar, bullseye, star and fan motif, a double notched handle and hobstar base. All of the items in this press release are American Brilliant Cut Glass.

The balance of the sale will be dominated by lovely, highly collectible vases, such as the rare, mid-size pedestal crescent vase signed Libbey in the Diana pattern, 10 ¾ inches tall with a scalloped hobstar petticoat foot and excellent blank; and the quality pedestal vase with across handles in the Jacqueminot pattern by Pairpoint, as featured in the Pairpoint catalog, with double notched handles and hobstar foot.

Paddles will wag for a magnificent 14 ¾ inch tall pedestal vase in the Genoa No. 2 pattern by Egginton, with a square base and exceptional quality; the large, 20 ½ inch tall vase in the Alhambra pattern by Meriden with a large hobstar base, one of the finest Woody Auction has sold; and an outstanding cylindrical, deep cranberry cut to clear vase in the Complete Russian pattern with star cut buttons.

Also offered will be a 24 ¼ inch tall trumpet vase in the Sultana pattern by Blackmer, having a huge hobstar scalloped foot and brilliant blank; and a cranberry cut to clear vase in the Iris pattern by Clark, 18 inches tall, boasting fantastic color and a large hobstar base.
