Glass Works Auctions, Nov. 4-11 and Nov. 18-25
Glass Works Auctions will hold two auctions from one catalog in November. Auction #134, The Colors of Fall auction, opens November 4th and closes November 11th and features the first offering of the Don Spangler collection of Midwestern glass. Auction #135, The Big Southern Round-Up auction, opens November 18th and closes November 25th and features Part 1 of the collection of the late Ralph van Brocklin. Both auctions are Internet-only. All bidding will be handled thru the Glass Works Auction website: www.glswrk-auction.com. About 25 of the 335 lots in Auction #134 will come from the Don Spangler collection. Parts 2 and 3 of the collection will be offered in subsequent auctions in 2020. From his home in Dayton, Ohio, Mr. Spangler became aware of the various forms and colors of Midwestern glass blown at the early Ohio glass houses near where he lived. He attended most of the bottle shows in the area from the late 1960s to the early ‘80s, including the famous Guernsey Barn show in Pennsylvania. Auction #135 - The Big Southern Round-Up Auction – will contain lots 336-476, with the headliner being bottles from the collection of the late Ralph van Brocklin. Glass Works Auctions maintains offices in East Greenville, Pa., and a gallery in nearby Pennsburg. Both are located north and west of Philadelphia. The firm is always accepting quality bottles and related items for future sales.
