Douglass, KS, USA, April 16, 2022 — An Antique Auction brimming with more than 450 quality lots is planned for Saturday, April 23rd, at 9:30 am Central time by Woody Auction, online and live at the auction hall. An in-person gallery preview will be held on Friday, April 23rd, from 1 pm to 5 pm Central time. Woody Auction’s modern, 5,000-square-foot auction hall is located at 130 East 3rd Street in Douglass, Kansas.
“This exciting auction has developed into a great selection of fantastic antiques from a multitude of small collections all over the country,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Tiffany, Daum, Stevens and Williams and Peachblow all have impressive highlights, along with Pickard Vellum and Rookwood pottery. The variety and quality are a real treat for any who have
interest in these and so much more.”
Several items could conceivably end up being the top lot of the auction. Here are a few contenders:
– A plated amberina water pitcher by New England glass, 6 ½ inches tall by 6 ½ inches wide, flawless, boasting excellent color and in excellent condition, with twelve well-defined ribs.
– An agate glass vase signed “L. C. Tiffany-Favrile #V586, 5 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches, made from extremely rare agate and with a faint honeycomb design, a great piece with exceptional quality.
– A Stevens & Williams Silveria art glass vase marked by the maker, with incredible bright iridescent colors, the original applied handles and green threaded overlay, in great condition.
Anyone in the market for a colorful and outstanding quality vase is in luck. This sale’s got dozens of them. Examples include a Morgan Wheeling Peachblow art glass vase, 10 inches tall with nice color, an acid/satin finish and the original glass base; and a signed Stevens & Williams English cameo three-color vase having yellow ground with pink and white cameo carved floral branch décor, 5 ¾ inches tall.
Still other vases will feature an unmarked English cameo art glass vase, 8 ½ inches tall, on blue ground with incredible white cameo carved overlay of poppy and butterfly décor, from the Sue Frick collection; and an art glass vase marked Crown Milano in a swirl mode with a beautiful Guba duck scenic décor, 7 ½ inches in height and pulled out of the Doyle and Mary Jane Fair collection.
An agata art glass bowl with a rare pink to lavender coloring, outstanding mottling, a ruffled rim and unequaled quality is offered with a Reed & Barton #968 silverplate frame, which works well to display the bowl. Also sold will be an extra nice pair of signed Handel #6150 boudoir lamps, 14 ½ inches tall, with beautiful reverse painted shades showing spring and fall season decors and a marked Handel base.
An original oil on board painting signed “B. P. Ommeganck” (for Balthazar Paul Ommeganck, 1755-1826), titled Landscape with Sheep (1814), in a gilt wooden frame that partially covers the signature and date, is 20 inches by 24 ¼ inches. Ommeganck was a Flemish painter of landscape and animals who was active in Antwerp. Through his work and role as an art teacher and founder of art institutions, he gave an important impetus to the revitalization of landscape painting in Europe’s Low Countries.
