DORFLINGER CRANBERRY CUT TO CLEAR EWER SELLS AT WOODY AUCTION

. January 2, 2018

An exceedingly rare, museum-quality Dorflinger cranberry cut to clear glass ewer, 17 inches tall, soared to $75,000 at a sale featuring two major collections of American Brilliant Cut Glass, held November 18th by Woody Auction, online and at the Hilton Kansas City Airport. It was the final major cut glass auction of the year for Woody Auction, which is based in Douglass, Kansas.

The Dorflinger ewer was the undisputed star lot of the auction. The piece boasted an extensive pattern and embossed sterling silver base by Redlich & Company of New York City. A matching ewer, only in green, is on display at the Dorflinger Museum. A set of red and green such ewers, either 12 of each or 12 total, was commissioned for the wedding of William K. Vanderbilt to Virginia Graham Fair in 1899.

The auction was co-headlined by the American Brilliant Cut Glass collections of Tom Grabb of Indiana and Bill Chandler of Tennessee. These include many rare patterns including Pueblo, Waldorf, Bellevue, Crystal City, Atom, Rex, and others
