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.

This auction will not disappoint Victorian glass collectors as it features a large and deep selection of rare cranberry and other opalescent glass comprising part one of the renowned collection of Larry & Diana Nellans of Naples, FL; fine American & European art glass including Steuben, Tiffany, Daum, Loetz and Webb; opalescent and miniature lighting; extensive collections of sugar shakers, salt shakers, and tumblers; a large selection of cut glass including rare colored and signed examples; Millersburg and other carnival glass; studio art glass; and Early American pattern glass.

The auction is on view Wednesday, January 15- Friday, January 17, 10 am to 6 pm each day; and on the auction day, January 18, from 8 am until sale concludes. 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 www.jeffreysevans.com, with live on-line bidding through the LiveAuctioneers.com.
