. November 6, 2017

Two major collections of American Brilliant Cut Glass – from Tom Grabb of Indiana and Bill Chandler of Tennessee, whose collections include many rare patterns such as Pueblo, Waldorf, Bellevue, Crystal City, Atom, Rex and others – will co-headline a cut glass auction planned for Saturday, November 18th, by Woody Auction, at the Hilton Kansas City Airport in Kansas City.

Highlight lots will include an extremely rare amberina Russian pattern bowl, with clear cut buttons, in possibly the rarest color in all of American Brilliant Cut Glass; and a museum-quality cranberry cut to clear Dorflinger ewer, 17 inches tall, commissioned for the wedding in 1899 of William K. Vanderbilt and Virginia Graham Fair, with an extensive pattern embossed sterling silver base, body and handle.

The auction will begin promptly at 9:30 am Central time. The Hilton Kansas City Airport is located at 8801 Northwest 112th Street in Kansas City, Mo. For those unable to attend in person, online bidding will be available via www.liveauctioneers.com/woody-auction-llc. Absentee (ort left) bids will also be accepted. A preview will be held on Friday afternoon, from 2-6 pm Central time, at the hotel venue.

Nearly 375 lots will come up for bid over the course of auction day, November 18th. Cranberry cut to clear wine glasses will include one signed “W. Fritsche” in the Thomas Webb & Sons Rock Crystal pattern, made especially for Daniel J. Sully, with a pattern cut stem; and another in the Parisian pattern by Dorflinger, with a pattern cut stem and scalloped base and manufactured in the highest of quality.
