MT. CRAWFORD, Va. — Come Oct. 18, Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates will conduct the third and final auction of the renowned miniature lamp collection of the late Marge Hulsebus of Redlands, California.

All cataloged lots in the Victorian and Kerosene Lighting auction will be available for online review and bidding at on approximately October 10.

Many of the Hulsebus lamps were featured in Hulsebus’ two reference volumes, “Miniature Victorian Lamps” published in 1994, and “Miniature Lamps of the Victorian Era” published in 2004. This section of the auction includes rare art glass lamps; Santa Claus, Swan and other desirable figural lamps; and enamel-decorated lamps, among others.
