North American Glass Auction

Our upcoming auction of historical glassware is now available for preview on-line. You may browse the entire sale at the link below.
North American Glass is privileged to offer the collection of William Knepp of Indiana. Mr. Knepp’s name is familiar to many collectors of historic bottles, who know that he collected a variety of exceptional glass and related items, while specializing in Indiana bottles of the 19th century. After 60 years of collecting, Mr Knepp has now chosen for his items to be passed on to the next generation of collectors. Many of his bottles were obtained individually by hitting sales, shops, auctions, bottle shows, and digging. While many others were acquired when he obtained the iconic collections of Pat Sheley and of Jay Butler. Mr Knepp’s collections will be dispersed over several of our upcoming auction sessions.
This auction also includes fruit jars from the collection of the late Craig Schoonover, rare New Jersey items from the collection of Frank Stubbins, more items from the collection of the late Tom & Deena Caniff, and Frank Tea & Spice items from the collection of the late Donovan Garber, along with several fine quality additions, featuring 467 lots in twelve categories.
