Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates' Victorian Glass Auction realized strong results
This set of glasses (Lot 49) sold for $2,300, nearly ten times the high estimate.
MT. CRAWFORD, VA.- An unusual Scottish Moor-pattern amethyst opalescent glass water pitcher, possibly by the West Virginia Glass Co., dated to circa 1890, sold for $4,887.50 at the Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates July 26 auction of Art & Victorian Glass. Estimated to sell for $300-500, the pitcher led the day’s results. (Lot 297).

A set of seven Continental two-color cut overlay Rhine Wine glasses rose to Vaseline (uranium) bowls, each with Strawberry Diamond and Ellipse design, on tall, cut-facet stem and star-cut foot, possibly by Baccarat or St. Luis, France, also did very well. The set of glasses (Lot 49) sold for $2,300, nearly ten times the high estimate.

Two circa 1900 Opaline Brocade/Spanish Lace green water pitchers made by the Northwood Glass Co. realized the same $1,495 price. One example had a squat body, with a seven-point star rim (Lot 249); the other had a ribbon-tie mold to the waist, and a circular, crimped rim (Lot 260). Both came from the collection of Larry and Diana Nellans.

Among the art glass sold, an Art Deco-period French Schneider/La Verre Francais vase in the Pavot pattern, sold above estimate for $1,380 (Lot 551). The vase came from the Estate of Jane K. Neal of Huntington, WV.

The next auction at Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates is a two-day special summer auction. The sale on August 22 includes country store, advertising, bottles, dolls, and more. The session on August 23 includes furniture, fine and decorative arts, Asian material, silver, ceramics, etc.
