Reviewing American Art Pottery’s Three Rs: Roseville, Rookwood, And Red Wing By Carol Perry

rt Pottery is one of those handy “catch all” terms collectors have coined over the ages. It refers to a ceramic vessel that was created more for beauty than for utility, although of course it may still serve a practical purpose. Vases, pitchers, fruit bowls, candy dishes, even dinner plates, bookends and lamps, may qualify as art pottery. America’s art pottery movement, and it was certainly widespread enough to be considered a movement, probably dates its beginnings to 1876. That was when the Centennial Exposition was held in Philadelphia, and American potters were dazzled by the magnificent pottery displays presented by their Oriental and European counterparts. French barbotine ware glowed with colorful underglaze and subtle low-relief decorations. Japanese vases inspired artisans with eggshell-thin pottery and delicate underglaze paintings.


A Roseville 17-inch pedestal vase like this one in the “Freesia” pattern, circa 1945, is estimated in the $300 to $375 range.

These are examples of end-of-an-era pottery. The ball pitcher is a 1930s Red Wing piece and the taller, speckled pitcher is from “Raymor” by Roseville, circa 1950. Today the ball pitcher is $35 to $50 and the Roseville pitcher around $250. Carol Perry photo.

One of America’s first art potteries was the Rookwood Pottery, established in 1880 in an old schoolhouse on the banks of the Ohio River. Founder Maria Longworth Storer came from a family of considerable wealth and a home filled with works of art. She, along with many of her lady friends, dabbed in the art of “china painting.” At first, her work force was made up of these society

women, talented amateurs who seemed to favor heavy gilding, carving and incision. Before long though, it became apparent that Rookwood was becoming a commercial success, and Mrs. Storer installed a professional manager. Gradually, the Rookwood style became more controlled. The potters borrowed from the French and learned the barbotine technique of applying decorations with underglaze. Beginning in 1884, Rookwood potters sprayed their underglaze with atomizers, giving a subtly shaded effect, similar to today’s most sophisticated airbrush techniques. Rookwood’s innovative styles were soon picked up by other potteries and before long several Ohio potteries were producing similar wares. Outstanding among these was the big commercial pottery called the Roseville Pottery Company in neighboring Roseville, Ohio. Roseville began producing art pottery in 1900 with a line they called Rozane. The portrait work done on Rozane pieces was often considered the best of its kind. Today’s collectors especially prize Rozane’s series of Native American portraits. Before long, the American market for artware, spurred by the late Victorian love of decoration and the burgeoning Art & Crafts movement, was apparently insatiable. Huge quantities of artware in a multiplicity of styles were offered to an enthusiastic public. The Red Wing Stoneware Company was established in Red Wing, Minn., in 1868. At first they made plain, utilitarian pottery. In 1892 they merged with the Minnesota Stoneware Company and operated as the Red Wing Union Stoneware. It wasn’t until 1920 that Red Wing entered the art pottery field and became Red Wing Pottery Inc. During the 1930s, Red Wing hand-painted dinnerware was a common sight on the tables of America, as the colorful patterns found their way into the ubiquitous Sears catalog and department stores everywhere. Rookwood, after several reorganizations, finally ceased operation

in 1967. Roseville was sold in 1954 to the Mosaic Tile Company. Red Wing closed its doors in 1967. Today’s collectors of all or any of the three Rs have a wealth of designs from which to choose, although choosing can get very pricey! A 4-by-5-inch Rookwood tile featuring a crow-like bird called a rook was used for advertising around 1915. One sold at auction in 2012 for $5,250. Signed examples of Roseville’s Rozane book can be estimated in the $800 to $1,000 range. At a Midwest auction, two rare Red Wing Stoneware salt-glazed crocks brought an amazing $40,000 each! That’s not to say that collectors can’t still buy good examples of these artwares for little money though; they certainly can. A nice Rookwood wall pocket still sells in the $50 to $100 range, and a pair of Art Deco Red Wing vases were noted in a Florida shop at just $85 for the pair. A good looking Roseville coffee pot from the 1950s can be found for around $75 to $100. Most collectors these days tend

to enter the “3 Rs” field at the end of the art pottery movement, collecting examples made in the 1940s and 1950s. These pieces, made by the pottery industry giants, are for the most part not hard to find and easy to identify by their marks. Rookwood’s earliest pieces were marked with the name “Rookwood,” the date and an anchor. In 1886 the mark was changed to the letters “R” and (Continued on page 2)

Swann Galleries To Auction Travel Posters From The Julius Paul Collection Two outstanding collections of posters form Swann Galleries’ Wednesday, Dec. 17, auction, with the event to feature 185 travel posters from the esteemed Julius Paul collection and over 200 literary posters from a Southern California museum collection. This is the second auction at Swann devoted to the Paul collection. The December 2013 sale saw institutional buyers competing with private collectors for the exceedingly rare examples in unbelievably fine condition. The travel posters from Paul’s collection are equally rare and stunning. The majority predate the first World War and hearken back to the age of nobility, before the ravages of World War I interrupted the European way of life. The posters are also largely free from crass commercialism and marketing gimmicks, reflecting a time when artists had free reign to depict a location as they saw fit. It was an era when a beautifully rendered image of a landscape was enough to encourage people to buy a train ticket. This international collection features vacation

destinations in poster for “Victor Austria, Belgium, B i c y c l e s / Canada, Denmark, Overman Wheel Co, France, Germany, New York, 1895,” Norway, Poland, which employs his S w e d e n , signature tall, thin Switzerland and image surrounded more.

U.S. Antique Shows recently concluded their second Pier Antique Show for the year, hosted at Hudson River’s Pier 94 on Nov. 22 and 23. The company reported strong sales across the show floor for the entire weekend from both new and veteran dealers as well as an impressive crowd for Appraisal Day. With expanded categories at the November show, nearly 30 new dealers were seen exhibiting at Pier 94. The Store with No Walls, run by Janet Maluk and Aleks Langdon, exhibited as part of the brand new Mode Vintage Fair Pavilion located in the popular Fashion Alley. “We’ve done other regional and international shows, but we were always interested in exhibiting at the Pier Antique Show,” said Maluk. “Being at this show as first-time exhibitors has been a very positive experience. We’ve sold a number of pieces, including clutches, handbags, and hats and met a lot of great people that appreciate vintage fashion. I will participate in every show that U.S. Antique Shows offers because of the wonderful time I’ve had at this year’s show.” Another first time exhibitor, James Koester of James Koester Antiques, reaffirmed Maluk’s enthusiasm for the show. “I love New York, and the Pier Antique Show has been great!” said Koester. “I’ve sold a variety of items, and there’s been lots of action.” Koester also signed up to exhibit in the upcoming Miami National Antique Show and The Original Miami Beach Antique Show in January. In addition, many of the show’s veteran dealers had exceptional comments about the weekend event. Gloria Karp from Glorious Antique Jewelry said, “It’s been a good show. There has been lots of knowledgeable customers, which makes work fun!” Silver dealer Martin Chasin, who’s been exhibiting at the Pier Antique Show for


23 years, sold many significant pieces. “I’ve had a wonderful show. It’s been a buying crowd all weekend long.” Appraisal Day, held Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., was also a huge success. In partnership with Skinner Auctioneers & Appraisers, the event attracted nearly 100 attendees curious about the value of their family heirlooms. The participants doubled in number from the first Appraisal Day, which was held at March’s Pier Antique Show. The items brought in for appraisal varied in both value and size, from jewelry and ceramic pieces to a vintage bicycle and large scale paintings. One woman brought her small wicker basket in for appraisal, since she had seen a similar one on the television show “Antiques Roadshow.” She was surprised to learn that it was worth upwards of $4,000. April Matteini, Skinner’s antique jewelry appraiser, revealed another unique discovery. A women brought in a three-carat diamond ring with an estimated value between $8,000 and $10,000. The Pier Antique Show featured more than 400 exhibitors of quality antique furniture, jewelry, and decorative arts. Items featured on the show floor included an array of kitchen and home décor, paintings, antique jewelry, art glass, ceramics, and more. Also, a varied selection of vintage clothing, jewelry and handbags were available in the popular Fashion Alley area of the show. U.S. Antique Shows now produces eight shows nationally. The Pier Antique Show is held semi-annually. The Spring Pier Antique Show will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29, 2015. The company will also be debuting LUEUR, New York’s newest antique jewelry and watch show on Thursday to Sunday, Oct. 15 to 18, at The Tunnel in Chelsea. For more information, visit

SHOPS & CENTERS COLLECTOR CHATS WITH PETER S. SEIBERT This Week: Thoughts On Where We Are With Antiques the old Soviet republics and China. Items from England seem untouchable especially when you factor in the outrageous shipping costs for getting a “small packet” across the ocean. I continue to hear stories about crazy finds on Craigslist and through the many Goodwill sites. I have never had much luck with either but that is probably because I don’t have the time to spend digging for hours. The world of museum catalogs seems to be a thing of the past, although I am pleased to see a few new publications being brought forward. I am often approached with publishing ideas but the cost of printing, storing, shipping and then wholesaling an exhibition catalog is just beyond most museums’ capacities.

experienced, can buy to their hearts’ content. This is particularly true with items that need restoration that would suck profit from a dealer looking for a fast resale. The Lancaster Chippendale carved desk that brought only $150 in the John Snyder sale is such an example. It needs new feet and repairs to the fallboard and backboard but past those issues, it is a high quality desk that would have brought a crazy price in the 1990s. Despite the exaggerated reports of eBay’s death (which appeared almost from the inception of the Webbased auction site), the site is doing just fine. The changes that I have seen on the site are much more about international economics. There are more sellers, some with great stuff and others with really questionable items, coming from

Peter Swift Seibert

I remember some years ago reading the obituary of a man who it noted had been an authority on antiques. My thought was that perhaps he was an expert on styles and periods but that no one is really an authority on the antiques market as a whole. It is just too subjective a field for anyone to really claim to be a true expert on it. Having watched sales from afar and made my own journeys into hundreds of shops and co-ops, plus spending countless hours on the Internet, I think the market is improving but not in a uniform way. For example, here

in the West, high quality Native American material is still strong, particularly among the blue chip names such as Maria Martinez, Margaret Tafoya, and others. Yet, for equally high quality Hispanic folk art from the Southwest, the market is still undecided. Silver jewelry and flatware seems to be crazy strong in California and Florida and yet we found pieces wanting for new owners in the Mid-West. Auctions seem to have shifted back to the realm of the dealer and away from being where collectors go to buy. How do I make this claim? High-end material is great (take for example the recently discovered frakturs found in York that brought five figures) but the middle market is truly the bargain basement of the trade, where dealers, new and

COLLECTOR CHATS (Continued from page 3)

the availability of titles (new and used) on Amazon, ABE and eBay have driven book prices way down. I think, for the future of collecting, this is wonderful, as it means the Mahantango furniture or Pennsylvania Decorated Chest books can now be found by new collectors. So, I think it is a great time to be a buyer. As I wrote earlier this year, there are many more opportunities for collectors. What do you need? A bit of knowledge, lots of hands-on experience, and the willingness to jump in and try collecting something new.

We are honored that he chose to entrust us with this precious natural resource.” The following is a list of 10 works (five works for each museum) selected from Scaife’s collection.

In recognition of his lifelong devotion to the museum, the Westmoreland board of trustees has determined to create the position of the Richard M. Scaife director. “Richard Scaife was a great friend to the Brandywine during his lifetime and is one of its most significant benefactors,” said Brandywine’s Padon. “The process of closely examining his entire collection recently brought to light very powerfully his passion for American art. Mr. Scaife’s paintings both enrich and enhance the Brandywine’s own holdings in many instances, such as Martin Johnson Heade and Guy Pène du Bois, bringing the first work by these artists to our collection. His interest in 19th-century and early 20th-century landscape and still-life paintings, in particular, aligns with the Brandywine’s holdings while at the same time broadening the collection to encompass a wider spectrum of American art. His impact on future audiences at the Brandywine is immeasurable, and we are profoundly grateful to him for his extraordinary generosity.”

O’Toole, director and CEO of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, began the selection process by choosing the most significant paintings from Scaife’s exceptional collection. “I will miss the wonderful conversations Dick and I had about American artists, paintings or current issues in the field. He was always both insightful and well informed. He remembered my interest in his collection of paintings by John Kane and saw to it that they came directly to The Westmoreland after his passing. I am sure he would have wanted to be a fly on the wall during the selection process between the Brandywine and the Westmoreland. It was the kind of meeting of similar minds and keen wits that he would have greatly enjoyed,” said O’Toole. Scaife had a close connection to the Westmoreland since it opened to the public in 1959, including purchasing


The Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art recently began the process of dividing up the art collection of publisher and American art proponent Richard Mellon Scaife. Scaife, who died July 4, 2014, bequeathed his art collection, which includes over 500 works, to both museums, specifying that it should be divided evenly between the two institutions. The staff and board of the Brandywine and the Westmoreland are grateful and honored that Scaife chose to distinguish their museums with this generous act of philanthropy. This unprecedented gift will add significantly to the permanent collections of both museums. After months of research and collaborative preliminary work, Thomas Padon, director of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, and Judith H.

The Atlantic City Antiques Show Will Return To The Atlantic City Convention Center JMK Shows has announced that the 2015 Spring Atlantic City Antiques Show will be returning to the Atlantic City Convention Center with the new spring dates of Saturday and Sunday, April 11 and 12. This annual major antiques event was originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22, at the Trump Taj Mahalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mark Etess Arena. As Atlantic City embarks on changes to its popular casino landscape, JMK made the decision to return to the venue that had worked well for so many years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really loved being at the Trump Taj Mahal last year. The venue was wonderful and the staff was amazing,â&#x20AC;? said Allison Kohler, president of JMK Shows, in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would

consider in the future returning when all the redevelopment is complete, but, at the core of what JMK Shows is about, we are a producer of some of the longest running and successful antiques events in the country. So, whether the Atlantic City Antiques Show is held at the Taj or at the Convention Center, the most important goal is that one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most respected antiques show is held in a venue befitting the level and importance of this event. The Atlantic City Convention Center certainly fits that bill to a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;T.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Kohler continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am both proud and excited to take this event back to where it has been wonderfully successful for so many years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the incredible exhibitors and the devoted antiquers, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what this

is about.â&#x20AC;? Kohler was pleased that JMK Shows was able to move the spring show dates to April and that the convention center was able to accommodate her request. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy that the show will be held April 11 and 12, a week after Easter and more solidly into the beautiful spring weather at the shore,â&#x20AC;? said Kohler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the climate changing and winters increasing across the country, March has just become too unpredictable, trending to ice storms and winter weather.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Atlantic City Convention Center is also solidly committed to helping support and promote this granddaddy of antiques events and is delighted for its return,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The convention center is a

state-of-the-art facility designed specifically for major events of this kind so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win for everyone.â&#x20AC;? In a final comment, Kohler stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;JMK Shows is a New Jersey-based company and, not only are we committed to the antiques industry, but we are also committed to supporting New Jersey and Atlantic City.â&#x20AC;? She noted that the state and city has been through a lot over the past few years and she is happy to support the area as it evolves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very exciting for me and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored to play a role in it!â&#x20AC;? Kohler said. The convention center is located at One Convention Blvd. in Atlantic City, N.J. For more information, call JMK Shows and Events at 973-927-2794 or visit

Smack Dab In The Middle: Design Trends Of The Mid-20th Century Those Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear: Radio’s Golden Age By Donald-Brian Johnson

“Do you remember radio?” One of the earliest radio compilation recordings began with an announcer booming out that phrase. He was talking about “The Golden Age of Radio,” the first communications medium to bring entertainment and information, drama, comedy, music, and news right into your living room. It’s a concept so far removed from radio as we know it today, that it might well have existed in a different universe. Radio’s “Golden Age” lasted from the early 1930s until the early 1950s, reaching its peak in the 1940s. (It might have ended sooner, but World War II stalled the development of television for a decade). The first station, Pittsburgh’s KDKA, set up shop in 1920, in the garage of Westinghouse engineer Dr. Frank Conrad. Westinghouse bankrolled the project, no doubt seeing future dollar signs in (and on) the air. KDKA can also take credit for the first commercial. When Dr. Conrad

An example of what everyone was gathered ‘round: a Zenith brown Bakelite radio, dating from 1938. $200-$250 (Photo by Leslie Piña). Do you remember radio? “Celeste 1944: On The mentioned that the records played were Air Flair” radio-themed lady head vase, seen purchased at a local outlet, the store was here designed by Debbie Kaspari for “Cameo Girls,” measures 7.5 inches high, $75-$100.

swamped. By 1923, some 200 radio operating licenses had been issued to such soon-to-be giants in the field as RCA, AT&T, and GE. With 1927’s first nationwide radio hookup, America was officially “on the air.” Vaudeville performers were among the initial beneficiaries. A single broadcast attracted thousands more listeners than could be reached in a year’s worth of road engagements. Among those hopping on radio’s bandwagon: Jack Benny, Bob Hope, George Burns and Gracie Allen, crooner Rudy Vallee, ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (with, naturally, Charlie McCarthy), and the “Songbird of the South” Kate Smith. Even Fanny Brice, a Ziegfeld Follies legend, found greater fame on radio as incorrigible “Baby Snooks.” Radio also created its own flotilla of durable, all-purpose stars. Among the sensaFrom the funny papers to the airwaves: a Marx tions of the airwaves: “Amos ‘n’ Andy” “Dagwood” car, 6-by-8 inches, $1,000-$1,100. (Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll); “Fibber McGee and Molly” (Jim and Marian Jordan); and “The Great Gildersleeve” (Hal

Peary, succeeded by Willard Waterman). These characterizations were just as beloved by audiences of the 1930s and 1940s as the characters on “Big Bang Theory” and “Modern Family” are by today’s TV-watchers. The difference? What radio characters looked like, where they lived, and how their interactions with other characters played out, relied mainly on the imagination of the listener. Today, avid TV fans can recreate the domain of “The Andy Griffith Show” down to the last doily. (In some cases they actually have.) But radio environments? Well, those existed only in the mind’s eye. You may envision Fibber McGee’s famed closet of noisy junk in one way. I might see it in quite another. Radio gave listeners the opportunity to imagine. That was its greatest appeal.

These were radio premiums celebrating Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. Here is a souvenir glass, 5 inches high, $75-$100; a Marx And we’re on the air! The illustration is from a Out for a ride in the “Fresh Air Taxi.” This is a “Benzine Buggy” 6-by-7 inches, $525-$550; and 1947 comic book distributed by NBC, heralding Marx windup, featuring “Amos ‘n’ Andy” mea- a windup Marx “Charlie,” measuring 8.5 inches the wonders of radio. $20-$25. high, $200-$225. suring 5-by-8-inches, Marx, $700-$750.

Of course, without “a word from our sponsor,” there would be no words from the performers. Many programs became inseparable from their identifying products. “Soap operas” for instance, earned the name because of sponsorship by soap manufacturers. Other programs proclaimed their product right from the get-go. “Jell-O again, this is Jack Benny!”; “This is Bob ‘Pepsodent’ Hope reminding you that it’s better to have Pepsodent flowing over your teeth now, than (Continued on page 14)

Long before “America’s Got Talent,” budding stars had their moment in the sun on Major Bowes’ “Original Amateur Hour.” This is the cover of “Radio Mirror” from March, 1936, $15-$20.

Cézanne met Hortense in Paris in 1869 while she was working as a bookbinder. Although the circumstances of their first encounter are unknown, an early portrait from 1872 suggests that she was modeling for Cézanne by the age of 22. Cézanne took great pains to conceal his mistress and their only child, Paul, from his family, fearing his authoritative father’s disapproval. The complicated subterfuge led to separate residences, frequent and often desperate appeals for funds, and long periods of living apart, even after their marriage in 1886. Despite this seeming neglect, the portraits attest to the constancy of a relationship that was critical to the artist’s practice and development. Their story is a compelling one, perhaps all the more so for the absence of its particulars. Highlights of the painted portraits in “Madame Cézanne” will include

From All Of Us At

The First Exhibition Of Cézanne’s Portraits Of His Wife, Hortense Fiquet, Is Being Held At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art “Madame Cézanne,” the first exhibition of paintings, drawings, and watercolors by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) of his most painted model, Hortense Fiquet (1850-1922), is being held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The MET). The exhibition will trace Cézanne’s lifelong attachment to the woman who was his model, his wife, and the mother of his son, Paul. She profoundly influenced his portrait practice for more than two decades, and yet, she was not wellreceived by either his family or his friends. The exhibition is made possible by The Florence Gould Foundation. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. “Madame Cézanne” will feature 24 of the 29 known portraits of Hortense that Cézanne painted over a period of more than 20 years, including “Madame Cézanne in the Conservatory” (1891) and “Madame Cézanne in a Red Dress” (1888-90), both from the Metropolitan Museum’s collection. Hortense posed for Cézanne more often than anyone but himself. The exhibition will consider their partnership in all its facets and complexities, the portraits of Hortense in oil, watercolor, and graphite providing the only material clues to that partnership. And yet, the paintings can seem unforgiving, with little understanding of Hortense Fiquet’s character. Critics have cited her sour expression and remote, impenetrable demeanor. These unflattering observations have promoted Hortense’s undeserved reputation.

A 242-page color catalog documents the exhibition, illustrating each photograph and featuring essays by the jurors and by Eric Wollman, professor of physics at Bates College. Shostak, curator of education for the Bates College Museum of Art, shared that, “The images in Starstruck are nothing less than overwhelming - depicting humbling, glorious delights that are often invisible to both the naked eye and even the telescope and are revealed only through photographic means.” Now a familiar topic in publications like Sky & Telescope and Astronomy magazines, astrophotography is a worldwide phenomenon, illustrating the convergence of art and science as told through the lens of a camera.

PACM™ gets the word


Were you lucky enough to peruse Gail and Jim Spann’s sizable fine minerals collection, you’d think the couple had either inherited much of their collection or had been collecting their whole lives. You’d be wrong. It all started a mere nine years ago when Gail and her husband, Jim, happened upon a store in Breckenridge, Colo., that sold fossils, curios and minerals. Jim had read an article about a Rhodochrosite specimen from the Sweet Home Mine (SHM) in Alma, not far south of This is a Three-Crystal Beryl Breckenridge, and wanted to Aquamarine, on Quartz, with know more. After seeing Spessartine Garnets Dotting

Alma Queen Rhodochrosite exhibit. Jim and I travel at different exhibit-viewing rates, so after being blown away by the Alma Queen, I wandered off to roam on my own. I became seriously enthralled with Romero’s (the Miguel Romero Fine Mineral Collection) full plate of San Francisco Mine Wulfenite. I went back three times; that’s usually the charm for me. I was in love.” She continued, “I took out my eyeliner pencil (my only writing tool at the time) and wrote ‘Wulfenite’ on a napkin. When I googled Wulfenite that night, I was amazed that these beautiful specimens, many which looked man-made, were natural. I yelled out to Jim, ‘Hey, honey! You can buy this stuff!’ And we did.” The fascination with fine minerals began. They found out how to access Dan Weinrich’s and Dr. Rob Lavinsky’s auctions, and they both started to learn more about this not-so-new collectibles field of fine minerals. “Jim was loving the research and learning as much as possible. And my art background allowed me to appreciate the aesthetics,” continued Gail. Unlike fine mineral collectors before them, Gail and Jim did not have to travel to all the great fine mineral shows to become educated and to find the best opportunities to purchase them. The Internet changed all that, and fine mineral collecting is more accessible than ever. Their Resources: Gail and Jim bought a full set of Mineralogical Record (known in the field as ‘MinRec’) publications, and soon found, a collector’s forum. They were invited to join the Mineralogical Association of Dallas (MAD) and found many mentors there. After

support,” said Gail. “We now submit a display at most of the shows we attend and get ‘down in the trenches’ so to speak. We’re also both managers on Mindat, I work to get more women interested in the hobby, and I serve on the board of the MinRec.” The Perot Museum: In 2008, a fellow MAD member, Jim Gibbs, asked Gail and Jim if they would like to be part of the discussions and planning for the

They served alongside fellow collectors and philanthropists Lyda Hill, Mark Pospisil, Rob Lavinsky, and Jim Gibbs, from start to finish. Due to his busy work schedule, Gail’s husband does not serve on any of the museum boards, but she serves on their advisory board as well as the Research & Acquisitions Committee and is a docent for the gem and mineral hall. Both Gail and Jim are financial supporters as well. Gail says “I love giving tours there, and due to my association with the Perot Museum, I am now also a member of the Society of Mineral Museum Professionals.” The Spann Collection: Fast forward to 2014. With other recent renovations to their home, Gail and Jim decided to build a vault room both as a way to address living in “tornado country” as well as to house and enjoy what has grown to approximately 8,800 Fine Mineral specimens. “At least that’s how many we’ve cataloged; there are many waiting to be put into our system, so I dare say we’re close to 9,000 now,” noted Gail.

Williams designed the custom cabinets with a mixture of halogen and LED lights, as well as fans, to regulate the temperature and highlight the specimens to maximum advantage. “We have overstuffed chairs and ottomans in the room as well, so you can really sit and talk about the specimens and enjoy the view,” said Gail. “It’s a comfortable and safe place, and we don’t even have to think about what ‘Dorothy’ had to deal with.” To manage their growing collection, Gail and Jim recently hired Elaine Blacker as their collections manager, whom they met through their work with the Perot Museum. Elaine received her Masters of Public Administration (MPA) in Museum Studies and has extensive experience both at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot Museum in Dallas.

“Best Case” at the Denver Gem and Mineral Show. What Now? The Spanns’ collecting bug is expanding a bit to include fossils, and Gail says “Good grief, studying minerals leads to other things. We have a nice slice of a meteorite, and a couple of petrified wood logs (one being 1,200 pounds and the other 900) serving as great conversation pieces in our home. We also have a few fossilized fish, ammonites, ammolites and a huge plate of nine fish, soon be placed behind a large sheet of glass that will become part of a water feature.” She continued, “We don’t really intend to collect fossils, but they’re a nice addition to our passion for minerals. We also have some beautifully carved fine minerals, including a piece made by the iconic Gerd Dreher, one of the five-generation family mineral carvers from Idar-Oberstein in Germany. We also have imbedded mineral slabs in our mantels and even in our bar top.” As a recent Christmas gift, Gail purchased a special microscope for Jim, and his world expanded again. “He’s gone on to research and name some minerals and enjoy all the scientific aspects.

Additional photographs and a reproduction section enhance the book, along with updated values to keep up with an everchanging marketplace. “Jadite: An Identification and Price Guide” brings together the works of the three major glass companies that produced jadite from the 1930s to the mid-1970s: McKee, Jeannette, and Anchor Hocking. Exploring these perennially popular collectibles, the book includes numerous dinnerware patterns, all sorts of jadite

kitchenware, canisters, shakers, mixing bowls, and ovenware, as well as additional jadite items for the home such as lamps, bathroom items, and ashtrays. The authors have produced a book that will be an invaluable and welcome addition to collectors’ libraries. For pricing and ordering information, visit
