Picture 4The annual December auction at the John Toomey Gallery in Oak Park, Illinois is always a fantastic one, with plenty of rare and wonderful Arts & Crafts, Prairie and Modern pieces for sale. This year's auction on December 1, 2012 is no exception. In addition to a rare art glass window from the Wright-designed Oscar Steffens House (built 1909, destroyed 1963) is plenty of Teco pottery. One piece that caught my eye was a monumental floor vase with inscribed floral motif that might have a connection to another lost architectural masterpiece: G.W. Maher's 1912 E.L. King (aka "Rockledge") estate (formally found near Winona, Minnesota). The vase was sold back in the 1980s at the same sale where most of the Rockledge's contents were sold—but it's not entirely known if this vase was from the house as well. Anyone out there know more? See all the auction listings here.
