Lifetime Collection of Glassware and Pottery to Sell at Halls Auction

Halls Auction Company ( announces the two-day auction of estate collectibles from the collection of Ruby Gano on June 13 and 14, according to Scott Hall, auctioneer.

“Ruby Gano began acquiring pottery and glassware as a department store employee in the 1930’s,” explained Hall. “The store sold a line of Fiesta Ware and one day the sales rep came in with a red Fiesta Ware cake plate sample. The owner sent it home with Ruby and that was the beginning of her lifelong love of collecting.”

In the late 1970’s, Hall related that Gano was bitten by the bug to expand her collection and began attending many auctions throughout the Midwest searching for hard-to-find pieces.

“It amazes me how one person can accumulate so many things in one lifetime,” said Hall. He said the auction features collectibles from Fenton, Carnival, Fostoria, Fiesta Ware, Hull, Roseville, Shawnee, McCoy, Fire King and many others.

“Ruby is the original owner of many of these pieces, and she displayed them prominently in her Illinois home,” said Hall. “There were close to 40 display cases in her home, full of highly sought-after items. We have cataloged over 1,600 pieces for this two-day auction event.”

According to Hall, there are many rare pieces in all categories of this two-day auction. “We have an American Fostoria one-piece cake stand, several pieces of vintage Homer Laughlin Fiesta Ware, vintage Hull Little Red Riding Hood canisters and a Little Red Riding Hood factory overspray cookie jar, as well as a number of other pieces collectors will find tempting,” Hall noted.

The auction is open to the public. Bidders must register prior to bidding. The auction will be conducted live at 614 N. Main, KC Hall, Paris, IL 61944. Bidders who cannot attend the live auction may bid live online via Proxibid. In-house shipping will be available for this auction. For information contact Scott Hall at 217-251-7653 or visit
