When asked about the results of the combination two day sale January 1 and January 7 J.K. Galleries owner Jay Kielstock replied simply, “The best ever.” Coming from a veteran with over fifteen years of experience in the art and antiques business under his belt that’s no small statement. As with all J.K. Galleries sales the auction was carried live online by LiveAuctioneers.com and over 850 bidders registered online to participate in the two sessions along with 80 bidders inhouse on January1 and 175 on January 7.

The sale featured 800 lots of art pottery, art glass, art and jewelry consisting of items from both living and deceased estates in Maine, Massachusetts, Philadelphia and several from Florida. One estate from Maine contributed over 150 lots of American Art Pottery including a large 16in Roseville Earlam on a Carnellian II mold, thirty pieces of Roseville Futura, several experimental Weller pieces and a large Rookwood scenic vase by Kataro Shirayamadani. The Massachusetts estate element contained over 50 pieces of Loetz Art Glass.

Kielstock reported that pottery dealers from around the country, including Chicago, Phoenix and the West Coast of Florida flew in for the sale and they came to buy.

Top lot of the sale was an outstanding KPM full figure porcelain plaque marked “LORELEY (Kray).” The plaque, measuring 21 ½ X 16in in the frame, was artist signed “Gorner” in the lower right. It sold on the floor in the first session to a private collector who paid $13,800 including premium for the work. It was followed by a Pairpoint puffy lamp with a closed top shade in bright green leaves and flowers in pastel tones. The base was fully signed with the Pairpoint trademark. Total height was 19in with a shade diameter of 11¾ in. It brought a winning call on the phone from a Florida dealer who parted with $12,650 for it.

Most of the Tiffany sold within or above estimate in the sale. A dark turquoise Egyptian vase signed “LC Tiffany Favrile,” 5½ tall by 4½in diameter brought $5,750 and a gold favrile 17in tall vase on a bronze and enameled base signed “Louis C. Tiffany Furnaces Inc #156” sold within estimate at $3,910. A signed gold compote with a flared stretch rim folded into eight ruffles with a 7in diameter brought $3,105 and an 8½ in tall gold vase with a large quilted pattern earned $2,1895 on the floor.

Rookwood and Roseville were equally well received. A Rookwood vellum plaque by Ed Diers, 14 by 12½in in the dark oak frame, made $4,715 and a 1915 vellum vase with the artist mark of Lorinda Epply, 6 by 7in, closed at $2,645. A 15in Roseville Futura floor vase in thistle pattern sold well over estimate at $1,955 as did an 8in Tourist vase at $1,610 while an 18in Blue Pinecone floor vase made $1,955.

Other significant lots included a 6¾in tall Loetz Titania vase in green and yellow selling for $6,900 and a 29in Royal Worcester figural group in majolica glaze, circa 1870, featuring a classically draped female figure holding a jug and basin with a large eagle perched on the base brought $5,750.

Kielstock reported a 96 percent sell through rate on pottery for the two day event. For more information call Jay Kielstock or Auction Manager Amanda Watkins or email. J.K. Galleries is located at 8221 W. Glades Road, Suite # 13, Boca Raton, FL 33434.
