The grand statement in the last SOTW -- that the Fall shot season has finally arrived -- obviously jinxed the flow of interesting glass, because while there have been many glasses selling (and many more not selling) in the past couple of weeks, they've mostly been pedestrian collection fillers. Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but I couldn't find a single suitable contender for SOTW.
But there were of couple of auctions that I can only describe as being "Shot of the ... huh??", because the prices were high and I have no idea why. How about this one:
Barb E has it listed in OASG and provides a fairly detailed history of the company, but she values the glass at the generic $12-18. I know Indiana was not among the more prolific glass-producing States -- but still, this glass sold for $102.50. Huh????
And then there's this one:
This was among a collection of run-of-the-mill pre-pro's being sold by mosaics_and_more. I haven't seen a wooden shot before either and thought I might drop a bid of of $15 or so on it, just for curiosity value. Goes to show how much I know - the auction turned out to be a slugging match between cattskills and patches61 that took it up to the final price of $179.50 several days before the close. Huh???? Guess there must be some serious Catskill collectors out there!
Congratulations to the winners!
Note that some previous picks for "Shot of the Week" can be found in The Archives.
