Vintage European Decorative Objects and Collectibles Come to Sale with SJ AuctioneersSep 11, 2022 16:00 EDT
In earlier times, silver claret jugs were used as vessels to contain Bordeaux wine before consumption. Ever since the practice moved on to pouring the wine directly from the bottle, the jug has become more of a collectible. One such claret jug is a key highlight of the upcoming sale at SJ Auctioneers. This silver and amber crystal owl figural piece from Spain features intricate feather and eye detailing and is stamped with hallmarks. Another striking lot is an extra-large black Herend fishnet elephant measuring 14 inches long and almost 10 inches tall. Herend has been known for this style of hand-painted fish scale patterns since the mid-19th century. A passion rose vase by Daum is also a noteworthy decorative object. It is created using the pâte de verre glass casting process, which involves packing crushed glass into a mold and fusing it by firing in a kiln. Daum is the only crystal producer today using this unique French technique.
An American Flyer 20535 S Pony Express passenger set leads the vintage toys listings. It features a powered and a non-powered diesel and four lighted passenger cars with metallic wheels, trucks, and knuckle couplers. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit SJ Auctioneers.
