From one of the most distinguished private collections of Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre, 20 examples came to auction through James D. Julia, Inc., recently, including a unique Nizami covered box that realized $23,692.
Birmingham, Alabama, is the location of the 60th Wedgwood International Seminar, which is taking place April 22-25. Those who register for the all-inclusive, four-day conference are privy to lectures from leading ceramics scholars, as well as hands-on sessions and conservation information.
Multiple estates will contribute to the diversity of lots in the June 11-12 auction offered by James D. Julia, including Tiffany lamps, French and English cameo glass and vases.
More than 400 pieces of period furniture, architectural antiques, and cut glass are scheduled for auction at North Carolina's Broken Arch Auction Gallery.
