Claret jug shines in 400-lot Brilliant Glass event

ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Woody Auction will launch its 2013 calendar with a sale packed with more than 400 lots of American Brilliant Cut Glass March 2, in Grand Ballroom A of the St. Charles Convention Center. The auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. (CST), with a preview on Friday, March 1, from 4-6 p.m. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com (http://bit.ly/XwSE2s).

“Nothing kick-starts a New Year like a wonderful American Brilliant Cut Glass auction,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction, based in Douglass, Kansas. “Many fantastic and unique items will be offered throughout the day, and a highlight will be the collection of Dr. and Mrs. Charles Dudgeon.”

Four lots in particular are expected to generate keen bidder interest. The first is a turquoise cut to clear claret jug attributed to J. Hoare. The 16-inch jug boasts an embossed Gorham sterling spout with hinged lid, a pattern cut handle and a modified Russian zipper and pillar swirl motif.

The second is a first-ever offering from Woody Auction: An original four-drawer cherry stemware chest, stocked with 69 rock crystal stems in Pattern #105 (as featured in Sinclaire, Vol. I, page 24). The chest and its contents were purchased directly from a Sinclaire relative, giving the lot an impeccable provenance. The glass lid on top of the chest lifts to reveal a mirrored base.

The third is a 14-inch by 15-inch signed Libbey punch bowl set in the extremely rare Aztec pattern. The set consists of a two-part punch bowl with 12 handled punch cups and matching ladle.

The fourth is the finest rose bowl Woody Auction has ever offered: A massive 7 1/2-inch by 10-inch signed Libbey bowl cut in the Emmerson pattern designed by W.C. Anderson.

Two other lots also deserve special mention. One is a 12 1/2-inch signed Tuthill round tray in the Rex pattern, exhibiting an exceptionally clear blank. The other is a 12-inch signed Libbey round tray in the Delphos pattern, with a brilliant blank and superb cutting.

Trays will feature a lovely 11-inch signed Hawkes round tray in the Panel pattern, in excellent condition; and a 13 1/4-inch round tray in a rare unnamed pattern, with six 7-inch plates and having a flashed hobstar center surrounded by interlocking vesicas featuring cane and diamond point highlights with a clear jeweled center. The tray is in great shape, with fine blank.

Phone and absentee bids will be accepted; all absentee bids should be submitted no later
