(1/3) > >>

Glen:
I posted yesterday about an iconic piece of Carnival Glass that was about to be auctioned today in Kansas City. It is the blue Millersburg Peoples Vase - the reserve was $60,000.

The auction has just finished, and courtesy of the Carnival club, wwwcga and webmaster Brian Pitman, we have had "live" auction results throughout the day.

The blue Peoples Vase sold for a record $100,000. The highest price ever for a single piece of Carnival Glass.

The entire auction was the highest grossing Carnival Glass auction ever.

Glass History was made today.

The auction grossed $615,950 for 314 lots. Well over half a million dollars.

If you want to read about the Peoples Vase, see my previous thread here.

That's one to look out for at a boot fair.   :shock:  :shock:  Amazing price.  I wonder if it'll have a knock-on effect on other carnival ware?
