Art glass, Art Nouveau and Art Deco market buoyant at Heritage Auctions
Exceptional and Important George Woodall for Thomas Webb & Sons Cameo Glass Vase: The Origin of Painting, circa 1887. Estimate: $100,000 - $150,000.

DALLAS, TX.- Each Spring for the last five years, Heritage has compiled an auction devoted to Art Glass and related decorative arts with the objective of meeting every taste and budget. The market has shown considerable buoyancy over the last few years, with some record prices achieved.

“We attribute this to sourcing everything from private collections, estates and museums” according to Heritage Auctions Senior Vice President of Special Collections Nick Dawes, who directs the sale from New York together with Samantha Robinson in Dallas.

The selection this spring’s Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Including Art Deco & Art Nouveau, which will be held June 4 in Dallas, Texas, is more varied than ever before. The sale opens with a strong selection of Tiffany lamps, mostly from one New York estate, led by an especially pretty “Dragonfly” table lamp, followed by a “fresh” collection of Tiffany glass from a New York doctor, and a variety of American glass including a unique Steuben exhibition vase engraved by Sidney Waugh in 1937.

Some of the rarest and earliest American art glass, including exceptional Plated Amberina and other New England and Mid-Western glass, comes from the estate of Dr. Jerry N. Black of Buckhannon West Virginia, who excelled in his professional field of ophthalmology and his passionate pursuit of rare art glass. The Black estate gives us 64 lots spread throughout the sale including the cover lot, an exceptional vase by George Woodall for Thomas Webb & Sons, and a strong selection of English cameo glass. French glass includes unique Emile Gallé artistic vases, Daum cameo and an impressive selection of works by Lalique, led by an “Oranges” vase consigned by the family who were original owners, and a large group of colored vases. Rarities include three “Rapace” drinking glasses, one of which is unrecorded in the catalogue raisonne.

A large group of modern Lalique includes the popular “Cactus” table, unique Lalique furniture from the 1990s and classic vases. Other modern works by Daum and Baccarat are accompanied by studio glass from Dale Chilhuly and a large selection from the Lotton family of glass artists.

Related decorative arts include furniture by Gallé from a Dallas area private collection with excellent provenance, a fine group of works on paper by Alphonse Mucha and Louis Icart, Art Nouveau and Deco bronzes including a beautiful “Loïe Fuller” lamp by Raoul Larche, a collection of erotic bronzes from a West Coast collection and various figural lamps. Of note is a finely curated collection of rare vintage automobile mascots, which combine well with Lalique glass examples including the classics “Victoire,” “Cinq Chevaux” and “Vitesse.” Art pottery is represented by a rare Fulper table lamp and a collection of British artistic ware by Bernard Moore, Moorcroft and Clarice Cliff.
