Early American glass highlights Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates auction
From a large collection of Victorian opalescent glass.

MT. CRAWFORD, VA.- Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates will offer rare early American glass objects and lighting from the Prus Collection in its January 18 auction, the first sale of an event-packed 2014 for the premier auction house of the Shenandoah Valley. The collection includes rare colored whale oil and early kerosene lamps; candlesticks; salt cellars; footed compotes; and a variety of objects in rare colors, many made at Sandwich and considered the best example of the type in the world.

The Prus’s bought great examples of a given form from earlier auctions of notable private collections, including the Elsholz; Wakefield and Levine sales. The emphasis on 19th Century glass is unusual for the Evans January sale, which more typically covers Victorian era wares.

The auction starts at 9:30 am and continues until the last lot is sold. The catalogue will be posted by January 9 and absentee bids placed via, with live on-line bidding through the
