Christie's "The Henry Stern Collection of Antique Glass Paperweights
(New York, September 24, 1997)"

Fabulous catalog from Christie's sale of the Henry Stern Collection.  This is an important sale of an unusually rich collection.  

New Orleans antique dealer Henry Stern amassed this outstanding collection between 1950 and 1993.  There are 194 lots in this auction.  Every lot is shown in color.  The collection included a wide variety of antique paperweights.  Most were French, but a few American antique weights were included.  Several 20th century weights were also included.

The catalog is one of the newer series of catalogs which deliver high quality color pictures of every lot.  For this reason, it belongs in every collectors library.  It includes the prices realized for each lot.  The highest price 
was $26,450 for an unusual St. Louis carpet ground weight, but it is also surprising how many lots sold for under $1,000. 

8 1/4" by 10 1/2".  96 pages.  Soft bound.
