Spectacular Tiffany, Frank Lloyd Wright windows lead luxe array of fine and decorative art at Morphys, Dec. 10.

Separate session features antique toys, trains, dolls and advertising

DENVER, Pa. This year collectors of fine and decorative art won't have to wait till Christmas to see their wish lists fulfilled. For the opening session of its Dec. 10-11, 2010 sale, Dan Morphy Auctions has brought together a superb selection of artworks from private collections and individual consignors that even the fussiest connoisseur would consider topnotch.

A breathtaking Tiffany Studios stained-glass window featuring a lush garden scene with trees, ivy, vines and roses adds the ultimate ''wow'' factor to the sale. The framed 43- by 72-inch creation, which depicts two massive columns, a winding path and an urn-topped wall, has been authenticated through expert research over a 20-year period by the premier authority on Tiffany, Dr. Egon Neustadt. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity, it is entered in the sale with a $125,000-$200,000 estimate.

In total, 20 stained-glass windows will be offered. Among them is a stunning Frank Lloyd Wright (attrib.) design that displays the genius architects trademark elements of linear composition enhanced by jewel-like mother of pearl details. The Wright window, which came from a residence in upstate New York, is estimated at $10,000-$20,000.

More than 30 art glass lamps will be auctioned in the Dec. 10 session. A Tiffany Studios Hydrangea lamp with a signed mock turtleback base is expected to make $75,000-$125,000.
