Part 2, The Ron Blessing Collection
An outstanding Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) table lamp with a leaded glass Nasturtium shade is the expected headliner in the sale of Part 2 of the Ron Blessing collection – an incredible accumulation of quality Victorian antiques, French cameo art glass, period American furniture and other items – on Saturday, March 18th by Woody Auction, online and live in the Douglass, Kansas auction hall. Buyers present at the sale will enjoy a zero percent buyer’s premium when paying by cash or check. In addition, buyers present will pay no sales tax since this is an auction of a single seller collection. Also, collectors take note: Woody Auction has attempted to call any flaws that can affect the value of an item, but final determination is left to the buyer. Common nicks and scratches have not been called. Previews will be held in the Douglass auction hall, for all of the antiques and small furniture items (but not the heavy furniture pieces and groupings), will be held March 17th, from 1-5 pm; and March 18th, from 8-9:30 am. People can register and bid online now, at www.liveauctioneers.com/woody-auction-llc. Bidders are encouraged to register at least 48 hours in advance.
