This piece is being offered for $3,000 to $5,000. One of Robert Arneson’s earliest works, a studio earthenware “moon vase” is being offered for $2,000 to $4,000.

In addition, six (6) glass lots from Lukens will also be offered.

From James Lovera will be the largest example of his work ever to be offered at auction. Measuring over 18.5”, this vase is done in volcanic and iridescent glazes. This work is being offered for $1,500 to $2,500.
