Woody Auction announces 400+-lot Antique Sale, December 3rd
The most historically significant item in the sale is an eight-sided revolving hardware cabinet made from oak with 88 drawers and porcelain drawer pulls, with ties to General G. A. Custer.

DOUGLASS, KAN.- Woody Auction’s final antique sale of 2022, on Saturday, December 3rd, promises to have something for everyone, with a catalog brimming with more than 400 lots in a wide array of categories. “The last in-person event of the year is as eclectic as any auction we’ve ever done, and is a combination of numerous collections from around the world,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction.

Highlights include quality jewelry, art glass, Gone with the Wind lamps, furniture, Limoges, Pickard, bronzes, plated Amberina, English cameo, clocks, Tiffany, Stevens & Williams, carousel horses, folk art, and one of the largest artwork collections Woody Auction has sold in decades. As with past Woody auctions, all items will be offered to the public without reserves.

Offerings from the New England Glass Company include an extremely rare plated Amberina art glass salt shaker with a silverplate top, patented in 1886 and boasting beautiful form and color, 6 inches tall; and a lady’s cuspidor (spittoon), also plated Amberina art glass and patented in 1886, exhibiting the finest color and rarest form – a worthy addition to anyone’s collection.

A green cut to clear decanter by Stevens & Williams, 10 inches tall, in the incredible figural butterfly form, is the first example of its type that Woody Auction has ever had the privilege to see and sell and is exceptionally rare. Also sold will be a Louis C. Tiffany art glass vase, 4 inches tall, beautifully decorated in gold iridescence with millefiori heart and vine décor.

The most historically significant item in the sale is an eight-sided revolving hardware cabinet made from oak with 88 drawers and porcelain drawer pulls, all original, 39 inches tall by 26 inches wide. The painted decoration on top of the cabinet reads, “Custer/Tuebor” (Latin for “I Will Defend”, in the shape of a Maltese Cross, designed after a privately made Custer medal.

General George Armstrong Custer designed the medal himself during his brigade's winter encampment at Stevenson, Virginia in 1863-1864. The Horstmann Company was founded in 1815. It was taken over by William Horstmann's sons in 1845 and became the largest supplier of military goods in The Civil War. The winning bidder will own a piece of American history.

The original artwork category will feature two oil on canvas paintings signed by William McKendree Snyder (American, 1848-1930). One is a nice quality rendering of a winter scene depicting a pathway along a stream through trees to a cottage, mounted in a 27 inch by 49 inch frame. The other is a superb Indiana fall scene of a path among trees, mounted in a 27 ½ inch by 37 ½ inch gilt frame. The paintings, from the same estate, will be offered as individual lots.

Fine estate jewelry will be led by a 14kt white gold and diamond ring with a 1.1-carat marquis center diamond having H color and VS-2 clarity. Numerous diamonds surround the center diamond. Also up for bid will be a 14kt white and yellow gold and diamond ring having four round brilliant cut diamonds with a combined weight of 1.5 carats (SI-2 clarity, F/G color).

Another noteworthy lot is the 116-piece sterling silver flatware set by Wallace in the Grand Baroque pattern, including 12 dinner forks (795 grams), 12 salad forks (525 grams), 23 tea spoons (800 grams), 12 place spoons (715 grams), 12 ice beverage spoons (435 grams), 12 dinner knives (1,030 grams), 11 solid silver serving pieces (540 grams), and 17 assorted pieces with stainless blades and/or wood (920 grams, the weight including stainless blades and wood).
