DOUGLASS, Kan. – A Spring Season bowl marked R.S. Prussia soared to $24,000 and a Regina upright music box brought $15,400 at the sale of the lifetime single-owner collection of David and Marlene Howard of Ohio, held March 19 by Woody Auction.
What made the R.S. Prussia bowl so desirable to bidders was the fact that it is the only known example of a Spring Season bowl in the Carnation mold. The bowl featured a portrait decor and a lavender and white satin finish. The Regina upright music box, serial #3500107, had a mahogany case, curved glass, its original Regina label, a double comb and dial selector, and came with 22 15-inch discs.
“Having the opportunity to sell the collection of David and Marlene Howard, who regularly attended Woody Auction events since I was a child, was truly exciting,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Any time you get to sell the only known example of an item means you are part of history – and a very small club – and that’s very special. The Howards spent time finding only the best items.”
An electrified table lamp by Pairpoint with a Venice shade having a large pink rose decor went for $7,700. Also, a signed Daum Nancy French cameo art glass vase, boasting a yellow, white, orange and amethyst mottled ground, commanded $3,450.
