STAINED GLASS: HUGE lot of just about everything
LARGE amount of quality stained glass material: Approximately 50 QUARTER sheets of glass, 240 hobby sheets, 4 large pieces MIRROR glass (including 2-way), box of sealed copper FOIL (7/32 inch), box of SOLDER; over 200 BEVELS (most in boxes or sets); some Swarovski GEMS, 5 lbs. of various nuggets.
MORTON portable glass shop (older style, 32x22) with components; GLASTAR foiler; INLAND Score One (hand-machine scorer); INLAND strip/circle cutter (from small to 24 inch); 4 full-size WORDEN lampshade FORMS: 2 of the 16 inch cone, a 16 inch dome, a 7 inch cone, along with a WORDEN FORM HOLDER & a few patterns for these.
There are 12 new antique-looking LAMP BASES in several sizes, with various harps & electrical components (some pricier 2 or 3 way, most single); LAMP CAPS & spiders; a bag of small night lights with a few metal forms; OAK KITS for clock, desk pen set & small lamps.
More than 30 PATTERN BOOKS many with full-size patterns (mostly lamp-shade & mirrors plus some others); Warner-Crivellaro & Studio J full-size flat patterns (over 30); other odds and ends: small amount of came with notcher; tubing for making small HINGES; fancy brass edger strip; small cast pieces with patterns for card holders & a butterfly-angel; ALUMINUM ANGLES for lamp-making, SHEET COPPER; REINFORCING BARS & braid, pre-tinned copper wire, etc.
If names like Kokomo, Wissmach, YOUGHIOGHENY, Spectrum, Bullseye, and ribbon-glass, antique-repro glass, textured, cathedral, wispy, streaky, seedy, opalescent, gluechip, iridizied, etc., in a wide selection of COLORS get you drooling, and you have some basic tools of your own (glass nippers, an adjustable soldering iron), then this could be the backbone of a real stained glass shop! All you’d have to add would be some consumables: flux, cutting oil, patina, glass cleaner/polish. I used to make 3 dimensional items in the early 1990’s. Been there, done that. Haven’t touched it in years, but made some wonderful GIFTS which live-on in fond memories!
First photo shows quarter sheets in wooden storage box with separators, too heavy to move with contents as is. Transfile boxes in next photo are about half-filled with hobby sheets. These are organized by main color: ex. yellow-orange-red, turquoise-blue-green, white-gray-beige-amber, cathedrals, solids, etc., with one mixed box of VINTAGE 1992 Youghiogheny repro-TIFFANY glass.
Other photos show lamps, a sample of the bevels (much more in boxes); lamp forms; not enough room for photos of everything!
Short of a new soldering iron and some perishables, this amounts to a glass shop in its entirety. I'd consider selling just the glass pieces if someone wants them all. Price is only slightly negotiable for the entire shop. Original cost was over 10k in 1990’s, and would easily cost more than that now based on what I’ve seen online.
Collection is located in Northwest CT (near MA & NY borders), about 2 hours north of Manhattan; easy access from major highways. Must be picked up; buyer should bring plenty of cardboard and cushioning material to pack for safe transport.
