|Sotheby's "Important Paperweights
from the Collection of F. Regnault and Frances C.D. Fairchild (New York,
June 16, 1999)"
Fabulous catalog from Sotheby's recent sale.
The collection included an incredible selection of very high quality weights. Only ten lots had modern weights, the remainder were French and American antiques (Baccarat, Clichy, St. Louis, Pantin, Boston and Sandwich, and New England Glass Company).
This is a "must-have" catalog for every paperweight collector. The catalog is in as-new condition. It includes the prices realized for each lot. The highest price was $96,000 for the spectacular Clichy Moss Ground Concentric Millefiori
This was a very strong auction with high prices for investment quality paperweights and no bargain lots. Even the paperweight books brought strong prices.
8 1/4" by 10 3/4". Soft bound.
