The company is rightfully proud of its history and leadership in glass technology and innovation, and it holds many manufacturing and design patents.

    Limoges Porcelain Featured in Woody Auction’s Online Antiques Sale

    In the late 18th century, miners discovered deposits of kaolin just south of Limoges in west-central France. Limoges craftspeople mixed this clay mineral with quartz and feldspar to create hard-paste porcelain. Recognized for its high-quality standards and expert craftsmanship, Limoges porcelain gradually earned attention and consumer demand. A display at the 1925 Paris International Exhibition of Decorative Art secured Limoges porcelain’s position as one of the finest types in the world. A set of seven Limoges porcelain mugs and a tankard will soon be available with Woody Auction. All six mugs measure 5.5 inches tall with hand-painted fruit accents. The tankard has a blackberry decoration and heavy gold trim. The handle of each piece resembles a dragon.  Also available in this auction is a five-piece children’s tea set featuring Rose O’Neill’s Kewpies. A teapot with matching creamer and sugar dispensers and two sets of cups and saucers are included. Other notable items include a table lamp with a leaded glass shade, two Royal Bayreuth decorative vessels, and more. To view the entire collection and register to bid, visit LiveAuctioneers.

    American & Brilliant Period Cut Glass Auction

    Cut glass can be traced back to 1,500 B.C. Egyptian vessels. In the United States, the first glassmaking factory was established in at Jamestown, Virginia in 1608. However, it was not until 1876 at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia that American brilliant-cut glass garnered attention. By the end of the 19th century, cut glass became a symbol of elegance and leisure. The high labor cost involved in the manufacture made it a luxury item. With the outbreak of World War I, the industry could not bear such high labor costs, ending the era of cut glass. The upcoming American & Brilliant Period Cut Glass Auction, presented by Woody Auction, offers over 450 lots of cut glass from the private collection of Mike and Mary Ann Callahan. Highlighted in the sale is a vase by Sinclaire. Founded in 1904 in New York, the company is known for its geometric and engraved patterns. The available vase bears a holly pattern with crosscut diamond bands. A pair of table lamps by G.W. Huntley Company is also among the key lots, each with fan motifs and pattern cut bases. Ice cream trays, rose bowls, and biscuit jars are also available. Browse the entire collection and register to bid online on LiveAuctioneers.
