Explore Iconic Frederick Hurten Rhead Pottery and Tiffany Studio Lamps in Upcoming Rago AuctionJan 20, 2022 11:00 EST
Frederick Hurten Rhead was a notable name among American ceramicists, famous for his studio and commercial pottery. Hailing from a family of Staffordshire potters, Rhead mastered multiple pottery techniques like the squeeze-bag method. The upcoming Rago auction features a 1911 pikesmen design vase by Frederick Hurten Rhead. Created during his tenure at the University City, the vase depicts warriors from medieval English history. Another highlight is a Tiffany Studios peacock table lamp with a turtleback base, colorful peacock feathers, and leaf designs. The lampshade utilizes Tiffany’s patented Favrile glass for its shade and patinated bronze for footing. Notable among porcelainware in this sale is an Adelaide Robineau seaweed vase.
A circa 1902 sideboard by Gustav Stickley showcases the designer’s signature style. The available oak sideboard with patinated iron has four drawers and a concealed shelf. Stickley’s furniture is famous for its exposed wood grain and plain pieces. It reflects the marriage of modern machines and hand woodworking methods. Rago’s Early 20th-Century Design auction also showcases an extensive collection of desk articles by Tiffany Studios. Collectors can explore earthenware by George E. Ohr, acid-etched cameo glass by Émile Gallé, and medium-pile carpets attributed to William Morris. Explore the entire catalog and register to bid online on Rago.
