I greatly admire the craftsmanship of glassware.
Jay McLellan's interest in glassware derives from his background in IT, where he worked on the organisation of (museological) data in large databases. When he came into contact with Dutch glassware via his partner, he noticed that no public catalogue existed for Dutch glassware. His aim was to create one and to spread the word, to stimulate new collectors. This turned out not to be in vain. As one of its first pioneers, he established a reliable online glass trade with the database. Meanwhile, after more than 15 years of successful trade, Jay McLellan may call himself an expert in the field of glassware.
This expertise Jay McLellan now uses for Catawiki, where he appraises Dutch and Italian glass objects. He is very aware of his responsibility as an auctioneer and always tries to stress the importance of lot descriptions that are as complete and elaborate as possible. For this reason, Jay McLellan particularly values good photos and gladly explains to sellers how to take these. Only then the details, the shapes and the craftsmanship will live up to their true potential for a good valuation and an exciting bid.
