Tiffany Studios lamps lit up the bidding at Heritage
DALLAS – Leaded glass and bronze Tiffany lamps led the total sales in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 15 auction that totaled $1,295,427.

Tiffany lamps claimed six of the top 10 spots in the auction.

“This was the next in a series of very strong auctions in this category,” Heritage Auctions Vice President of Special Collections Nick Dawes said. “The sell-through rate of over 97 percent underscores the quality of the lots in this sale, and casts a spotlight on the knowledge of the collectors.”

Six collectors made bids for a Tiffany Studios leaded glass and bronze Peony table lamp until it exceeded pre-auction estimates when it closed at $93,750. The lamp had first appeared on the auction market more than 40 years ago and was discovered in a Pennsylvania estate. Nearly a dozen collectors pursued Tiffany Studios leaded glass and bronze Red Poppy table lamp until it finished at $81,250, more than twice the low pre-auction estimate.

The auction featured an impressive selection of pate-de-verre, mostly from the early 20th century, but the top lot was a modern example: monumental limited edition Jean-Philippe Richard for Daum Pate-de-Verre Glass Charlotte sculpture with original box, which sparked a flurry of competitive bids before selling for $47,500, more than tripling its low pre-auction estimate.

Heritage has developed a strong market for modern Daum and Lalique limited edition artistic pieces. A record price was set for the classic post-war Lalique frosted glass Masque de Femme plaque, which was presented with original metal stand, which more than doubled its low pre-auction estimate when it closed at $11,875.

The market for Rene Lalique proved strong and saw a R. Lalique frosted glass Grande Boule Lierre vase with green and sepia patina take $32,500, more than twice its low pre-auction estimate.

Other top lots included:

• Tiffany Studios leaded glass and bronze Daffodil table lamp: $30,000

• Tiffany Studios leaded glass and bronze Banded Dogwood table Lamp: $27,500

• Rare R. Lalique amber glass Suzanne Statuette on bronze Peacock illuminated base: $25,000
