Jeffery S. Evans Auction is going on right now.
There is loads of glass and a few chestnuts. The
auction ends in less than 24 hours.

Jeff seemed like a decent guy I met him at a party a few months back he used to do the catalogs for Green Valley auctions. I left a few bids in his sale. Hes only a couple hours drive so I can go pick up anything I win.

I left quite a few bids online, but I really doubt I will end up with anything. There was some great colored pressed glass, as well as some super Pittsburgh pillar molded pieces. Greg, I was on the chestnuts and glob as well!

Jeff is a very trustworthy and accurate auctioneer, and a real nice guy.

I had started to bid on the chestnuts myself but stopped bidding
since I had just got two that I posted pictures of.
Your right, there was a lot of very nice glass in the auction.
There were several pieces of glass that I would have liked to get.

Here's another vote for for Jeff (and let's not forget his lovely wife Beverley) as being GREAT folks. One of the very few auctions where I will bid with abandon without having seen the objects "in person."

So did anyone here manage to win anything? the early New Jersey Chestnut and the New England Glob were very nice. I thought the geometric inks, though common molds went kind of cheap.

I was really tempted to bid on the air twist wine glass (like I need more stuff setting around the house). They had some really nice items.
It was pretty much last minute notice for me. I guess i need to register to get on thier list. How often do they have sales?

I did not know of this auction until I was sent a link
from a American Cup Plate forum member.
With the amount of glass in that auction I would
assume they deal with glass on a regular basis.

Greg,

Green Valley has been dealing nice glass for years. Jeff Evans was managing Green Valley before going on his own. He has quite a bit of experience in this area, and I am sure you will see much more.

Is there a post auction price list anywhere?

By the way, I concur with Jeff about the chestnuts, however, I will say that the base of the smaller one looks a bit different than most New England style examples. It looks like the pontil glass broke off a bit further back leaving a heavy scar. Usually the scar is faint and much more delicate on the New England chestnuts. No doubt about the one on the left... love it!

Thanks Woody.

It looks like some pretty strong prices, although I was the underbidder on a few of them. I hate that... :)

Mike, I appreciate your input on the smaller chestnut. I also
appreciate Jeff's opinion. I reposted a few pictures of
the bottle so people like yourself and Jeff could see the
form more closely. The rolled lip was keeping me from
the thought of it being of New England manufacture.
Between you and Jeff I'm learning something new. But
now when I think about it; I have a dark amber chestnut with
a rolled lip that I was assuming was from a New England glass house. Thanks Mike and Jeff for your opinions, Greg

Thanks for the post. Mt Crawford is only 20 minutes from where I live. I was familiar with Green Vally but hadn't realized that Jeff had started his own auction company. I will definately check it out for both buying and selling.
