The Galle vase was of the highest quality and featured white, yellow and green tones, with a green cameo carved vine and blossom décor. The Fenton pedestal vase, unmarked, was made from mosaic art glass and boasted beautiful colors. Made around 1925, the vase featured most of the original Fenton label. Other makers in the sale included Tiffany & Company, Royal Flemish, Daum Nancy and others.

The Jochimsen collection was a bountiful selection of some of the best Wave Crest and French cameo pieces available, plus other fine items. The Wave Crest featured plaques, jardinieres, bells, boxes and vases. The collection also had a French cameo, plated Amberina, pink agata, slot machines, a Pairpoint lamp, Thomas Webb & Sons English cameo and more. Over 500 lots came up for bid.

An unmarked Wave Crest art glass plaque, showing a scene of a young woman in a pink dress, housed in the original 15 ½ inch gilt metal frame with the original backing, reached $4,888. Also, a rare, unmarked Wave Crest cameo carved jewelry box, an example of the highest quality art glass, with a lake and tree scenic décor, garnered $2,750.

A signed Webb English cameo art glass cologne bottle, square form, 6 inches tall, yellow ground with cranberry and white cameo carved floral vine décor and a glass stopper, brought $3,850; while a French cameo art glass perfume signed Daum Nancy, with a yellow and orange ground with cameo carved poppy and cornflower décor, plus enamel highlights, rose to $3,738.
