Tiffany, Bride’s Baskets and Daum Nancy glass may headline Frick art glass collection

ST. CHARLES, Mo. – The single-owner lifetime collection of Bill and Sue (Carolyn) Frick of Missouri – comprising over 500 lots of quality art glass and more – will be sold on Saturday, April 30, in the junior ballroom of the St. Charles Convention Center, starting at 9:30 a.m. (CST). The sale will be conducted by Woody Auction, headquartered in Douglass, Kan.

The Fricks have attended Woody auctions for years, said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Now, they have determined it is time to offer their collection at public auction without reserve.”

Tiffany pieces will include a rare 18-inch unmarked jack-in-the-pulpit vase with white, green and gold iridescent pulled feather design and 8 3/4-inch diameter face; and an 8 1/4-inch decorated art glass vase with green background and gold heart and vine décor. The base has a fake “LCT” mark and the original paper label. Overall, it has nice color and is in good condition.
