Of the numerous items of interest in this auction we would be remiss if we did not point out the rare and wonderful example of Tiffany & Co. art glass with elaborate and unusual silver mounts. The bulbous glass body features iridescent thread-like applied glass decoration on a gourd-shaped form. It has a sterling silver footed base as well as a sterling silver dotted and flared neck.
Another lot worthy of note is the particularly nice example of Nippon porcelain with shimmering coralene decoration. There is much to get excited about in the category of Nippon ware but this piece, in particular, is exceptionally fine. It features a tapered body with blue, yellow, and pink gradient ground and coralene white flowers and foliage. The neck and the base have cobalt blue ground accented in gilt designs.

One of the many great currency offerings one notable exception it the rare, large size, United States National Currency $10 bill. This happens to be the only known example of this variety of this particular note. It comes from the First National Bank Of North East Pennsylvania, series 1882, Charter Number 4927.
