DOUGLASS, Kan. – Woody Auction is offering a surefire cure for cabin fever with what it’s calling the finest art glass auction ever held at its Douglass gallery, opened in 2015. Offered will be over 350 lots, featuring three core collections of mainly art glass and art pottery. The sale will be held Saturday, March 18, starting at 9:30 a.m. Central time. Absentee and Internet bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.

Expected top lots will include Galle and Daum Nancy “bat” vases, a Galle marquetry vase, brides baskets, Weller and Roseville art pottery.

As with all Woody Auction sale events, everything will be sold without reserve.
