Heritage Auctions, Dallas, TX, held a Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass sale on October 28, 2021 with total sales of $1,815,577. Prices were strong, especially for Tiffany Studios lamps and glass.
A nice Tiffany Studios 20″ diameter Dragonfly table lamp went on the auction block with an estimate of $70,000 – $90,000. It sold well above its high estimate, realizing $150,000, including buyer’s premium. In my opinion, it was a good example, but not exceptional. The eyes of the dragonflies were not jeweled and the color of the entire lamp was just okay. The Four Virtues base was nice. Congratulations to the consignor.
Lot #79016, an 18″ diameter Oriental Poppy table lamp was the second best performing lot of the sale. It sold below its low estimate of $100,000, realizing $118,750, including buyer’s premium. In my opinion, the estimate was too strong. I think a better estimate would have been $70,000 – $90,000, instead of $100,000 – $150,000. I also don’t understand the bidders; the results for these two lamps should have been reversed. The Oriental Poppy was a stronger example, with exceptional red flowers.
A Gallé Crocus marquetry vase, Heritage lot #79100, sold well above its estimate of $10,000 – $15,000, realizing $26,250, including buyer’s premium.
