Catalogued Auction of EAPG & 19th C. Glass
Featuring the personal collection of Judith (Judy) Cronin of Cape Cod, MA. During the 1970s and 1980s Judy Cronin was widely recognized as the leading authority in the field of Early American Pattern Glass. Her mentors were renowned dealers George Abraham and Gilbert May, who upon retiring from the business in 1972, sold their entire stock and personal collection to Cronin. Over the next 20 years Judy bought and sold thousands upon thousands of pieces of Early American pressed glass including examples of most, if not all, of the great EAPG rarities. Specimens retaining her provenance reside in major private and institutional collections from coast to coast. It is our honor to present Judy Cronin?s private collection at unreserved auction.
