I accidentally published this article before completing it. I apologize. When working on articles I save drafts as I go along. When I edit, I click the “Preview Changes” button to see if changes went through. The “Preview” button is directly under the “Publish” button.

I’ve wondered how long it was going to take me to do that!

I’m happy for the sellers of these two pieces and already jealous of the buyers. I think the size and presence of these 2 pieces will do well for the sellers. My largest vase is 12.5 inches. These 2 are 15 inches and 17 inches respectively.

All Early 20 c. Design lots can be viewed here.
