This weekend saw two local events focusing on the art and antique community in Pittsburgh. In Wilkinsburg, an auction at Dargate saw the sell of many American and Continental European items including several pieces of Pittsburgh Glass. Among them, six Bakewell Glass Flutes brought $1,000 and a pair of Celery Vases brought $850.
Items relating to Pittsburgh could also be found at the Kerr Museum Antique Show held at the Oakmont Country Club. Paintings by Christian Walters and George Hetzel, among others, were offered along with an assortment of silver, furniture, glassware and period lighting.
