Douglass, KS, USA, August 11, 2020 -- Woody Auction will present the outstanding American Brilliant Cut Glass collection of William Buschling from Kansas City, Missouri in a two-day auction slated for Friday and Saturday, September 11th and 12th. The sale will be held in Woody Auction’s Auction Hall at 130 East Third Street in Douglass and online, beginning at 5 pm Central time on Friday and 9 am on Saturday.
“The William Buschling collection is sure to catch the attention of American Brilliant Cut Glass collectors worldwide,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Bill's collection features an exceptional array of quality glass, with a special emphasis on sterling adorned pieces. There are ewers, decanters, vases and more - nearly 650 lots will come up for bid, with priceless beauties throughout both days.”
Mr. Woody added, “We’re beyond proud to offer this collection to the public. Just as Bill had purchased many of his pieces, this collection is being offered to the highest bidder without reserve. And, as always at Woody Auction, there are no buyer’s premiums for those in attendance, when paying with cash or check.” All lots can be previewed at the Auction Hall on Friday, September 11th, from 1-5 pm Central.
Following are just a handful of the expected top lots in the auction. Most are fine examples of American Brilliant Cut Glass (ABCG) from the collection of William Buschling.
Certain to get paddles wagging are a Brilliant Period Cut Glass two-handled, green cut to clear loving cup, 6 ¾ inches tall, with an engraved floral and rococo design attributed to Stevens & Williams; and an ABCG pedestal ewer, with reticulated sterling silver foot with embossed spout, handle and flip lid by Theodore Starr Co., 14 inches tall, engraved with a fern design, star diamond and fan highlights.
Beautiful ABCG vases will feature a 22-inch-tall trumpet vase having three sections of hobstar, strawberry diamond, vesica, zipper and fan motif and a large spiral-cut knob stem, plus a huge 8 ½ inch diameter scalloped hobstar foot; and a 16 ½-inch-tall vase in the Othello pattern by Clark, boasting a step cut neck, pattern cut rim and a hobstar base. Both are fine examples that would display nicely.
