Woody Auction to host major sales featuring American Brilliant Cut Glass and R.S. Prussia)

Woody Auction has two major events lined up for March and April: an American Brilliant Cut Glass auction on Saturday, March 16th and an R.S. Prussia auction on Saturday, April 6th. Both will feature outstanding single-owner collections and will be held online and live in the auction hall located at 130 Third Street in Douglass. Start times for both auctions will be 9:30 am Central time.

The March 16th sale is nicknamed a “Presidential Auction Weekend” because it features the collections of two past presidents of the American Cut Glass Association (and because it’s sure to make headlines). The collections of Wilbur and the late Mary Bluhm (ACGA president, 2006-2008) and Leon and Carol Torline (ACGA president, 1998-2000) contain some of the most profound pieces of brilliant cut glass.

“These dedicated collectors spent decades collecting some of the finest examples of ACG out there,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction, adding, “This is an event not to be missed. It will be highlighted by a rarity beyond description – a centerpiece in the Crystal City pattern (aka Wedding Ring) by J. Hoare, with a sterling ring that takes your breath away.” The lot has an estimate of $20,000-$25,000.

The April 6th auction will feature nearly 350 lots of quality R.S. Prussia pieces, led by the collections of Dr. Joe and Faye Krick of Tennessee, showcasing some incredible examples of the best of the best; and the late Jerry House of Michigan, whose collection will fill out the remaining part of the auction with flawless examples of Seasons and Melon Eaters. It’s a must-attend event for collectors of R.S. Prussia.
