Leslie Hindman's 20th Century Decorative Arts Sale realizes $1.23 million
An Art Deco Verre Eglomise Panel, attributed to Jean Dupas, sold for $80,500.
CHICAGO, IL.- Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ October 23 20th Century Decorative Arts auction realized $1.23 million. The top lot of the sale, an Art Deco painted glass panel attributed to the S.S. Normandie, sold for $80,500 to a buyer in Paris, France. The panel was likely part of a mural designed by Jean Dupas for the ocean liner, whose lavish interiors were masterpieces of the Art Deco period.

A collection of rare cameo glass from the estate of Adrienne Krumhorn led the first hour of the sale. A Gallé Crocus glass vase from Krumhorn’s collection sold for $17,500, estimated at $7,000/ 9,000, a Gallé mold blown vase sold for $15,000, estimated at $4,000/ 6,000 and a René Lalique Penthievre vase sold for $27,500, estimated at $10,000/ 20,000. A majority of the Adrienne Krumhorn collection realized prices beyond the high estimate. Other examples of Daum, Gallé, René Lalique and Gabriel Argy-Rousseau works brought three and four times their pre-sale estimates.

Mike Intihar, Senior specialist, said, “Glass collections like these do not come to the market very often and when they do, we see fantastic results like we saw on Wednesday.”

Bidding was lively throughout the auction in all categories. A Daum cameo glass lamp which had been in storage and descended through family ownership sold for $47,500. A René Lalique Suzanne figure sold for $25,000, and a Tiffany Studios Nautilus lamp sold for $25,000. These three lots drew bidders from France, Japan, England and New York, but all three sold to buyers in the Midwest, demonstrating the buoyancy of the market in Chicago for 20th century works.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ next 20th Century Decorative Arts auction is scheduled for April 15, 2014. Consignments are invited through February 14, 2014. An online-only Classic Glass auction of contemporary works by Lalique, Steuben and Daum is scheduled for December 9-13, 2013.
