It looks like number 364 is a pair of twisted Nailsea domes. It also looks like one is cracked. I wonder if they take absentee bids and ship to the states.

Yes, they will take absentee bids. There is a form on their website but they will also accept an e-mail stating the lot numbers and amount. The bid should be in Australian dollars and they will accept several forms of payment including bank transfer.

Since since some of the lamps show damage, be careful with your bidding if you are uncertain about the condition.

Now that the Young's auction is over, I thought I would post all the hammer prices to see what you think of the results.

I have tabulated the results and converted the AUD to USD. Keep in mind the hammer price does not include the buyer's premium or shipping to the US. The results are at:

Did everyone spot the Nailsea base, Lot 456?

Fairy Lamp Auction-Australia

Post by nctheo on Fri Apr 03, 2009 5:59 pm

I watched this auction and bid on two lamps myself-I did not catch the nailsea base at all, but
if the American purchaser of #368 (the two Blue Swirl Icicled lamps) would like to part with one
of the two, I would be happy to negotiate!!! I also bid on #370, and think that is a great looking
lamp I have not seen before-some great prices!!! Thanks for letting us know about the auction.

Just to follow up on the auction.

I have learned that four fairy lamp lots went to collectors in the US. The remaining fairy lamps went to nine different buyers in Australia. I wonder if they were fairy lamp collectors or dealers. If they were dealers, perhaps we will see these lamps again on eBay.
