American Brilliant Cut Glass Auction, March 27-28
Woody Auction will present its first live American Brilliant Cut Glass auction of the year with a public and unreserved two-day sale featuring several important collections. The event will be held Friday and Saturday, March 27th and 28th, online and in Woody Auction’s Auction Hall at 130 East Third Street in Douglass, Kansas, starting at 5 pm Central on Friday, March 27th and 9 am on Saturday, March 28th (an earlier Saturday start time than usual start time). Headlining the auction will be the collection of the late Steve Owlett of Pennsylvania, who gravitated to J. Hoare cut glass because his family tree actually included John Hoare; the collection of the late Dr. and Mrs. Elizabeth Dudgeon of Florida, featuring items that include a Dorflinger green to clear vase with gilded sterling top; and the collection of Roger, Lois, Randy and Deb Rasmussen of South Dakota. The catalog is brimming with 14 punch bowls, 20 ice cream trays, 60 vases, 45 decanters and over 60 pieces of color. Rare patterns such as Pueblo, Wheat, Croesus, Richilieu, Coronet, Persian and Panel all grace this auction, along with a wide array of other notable patterns. “Never has the statement, ‘We hope to see you there’ been more appropriate,” remarked Jason Woody, the owner of Woody Auction. A preview will be held Friday, March 27th, from noon to 5 pm Central time in the Douglass Auction Hall. People can register and bid online at www.liveauctioneers.com/woody-auction-llc.
