Kewpies that caught collectors’ eyes at two spring auctions are featured in a sale report in Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles June 2016 newsletter. See pictures and prices of cute kewpie dolls and figurines with side-glancing eyes and little blue wings that sold for up to $10,000. Amphora pottery is known for its fanciful Art Nouveau designs and applied naturalistic elements. More than 70 pieces by well-known Bohemian makers were auctioned in Pennsylvania. Top lot was a Paul Dachsel vase with trees and pinecones that brought $7,320. See other pieces with dragons, lizards, spider webs and simulated jewels in Kovels’ June newsletter. And intricately carved Victorian furniture attracted buyers to an Alabama auction. A seven-piece Belter parlor suite by John H. Belter that topped $200,000, a Pottier and Stymus bed for $11,500 and a monumental Meeks étagère all proved that Victorian furniture by well-known makers is on the rise.
Colorful casual Fiesta dinner and kitchen ware sold at a two-day auction in Indiana. Thousands of pieces, both vintage and modern, went for a wide range of prices that peaked at over $12,000 for a prized “red stripe” onion soup bowl. More priced Fiestaware is in Kovels’ latest issue. Kerosene lamps of the Victorian era come in a variety of shapes and designs from humble opaque glass to expensive art glass. Hundreds of miniature lamps from a 40-year collection were included in a Virginia auction, where prices ranged from $20 to over $6,000. Examples are pictured and priced in Kovels’ June newsletter.
