Of the over 400 lots of early 20th century design on offer, works by American makers were among the highest priced. Lot 600, an important squeeze-bag decorated vase by Frederick H. Rhead for Arequipa sold for $93,750 – breaking the record for highest price achieved at auction for a piece of Arequipa pottery. Lot 602, another vase by Frederick H. Rhead for Steiger Terra Cotta & Pottery Works, defied its auction estimate in dramatic fashion, selling for $21,250 against a high estimate of $1,500. Works from Tiffany Studios proved to be in high demand, representing six of the top nine lots in the Early 20th Century Design segment. Tiffany highlights include Lot 806, an enameled copper dragonfly tray that achieved $37,500, more than twice the high estimate of $15,000; Lot 832, a blue wave patterned table lamp which shattered its estimate of $4,500-6,500 and sold for $28,750; and Lot 802, a rare mosaic pen wiper which sold for $26,250 against a high estimate of $10,000.
