"The Five Pieces I'd Like to Have in My Next Sale"
Every collector dreams of obtaining the unattainable. Auction houses feel no differently when they look for consignments for their next sale. Suzanne Perrault, partner and co-director of Rago’s, the largest auction house in New Jersey, will address the NY Metropolitan Glass Club on this quest in our first lecture of the new year.
Using five major pieces of 20th Century glass, Ms. Perrault will track their progress from glassmaker to primary gallery to collector and finally to the auction block. She will draw a vivid picture, illustrating how the work of five glass artists evolve from design innovation to the secondary market.
Born in St. Hyancinthe, Quebec, Ms. Perrault received a bachelor’s degree in English literature from McGill University in Montreal. She worked as a fashion model in Montreal before becoming an independent antiques dealer, following her apprenticeship with Barton Kaplan Antiques in New York. In 1991, she joined ranks with David Rago to open the Perrault-Rago Gallery.
Suzanne is also an author who lectures nationally and an expert appraiser for the hit PBS series, Antiques Roadshow, where she specializes in decorative ceramics and porcelain.
The New York Metropolitan Glass Club meets the first Tuesday of each month (from October through May) at St. Michael’s Church. Annual membership dues range from $25 (student rate) to $90 (for a family). Attendance on a per meeting basis is $15. This admission fee will be credited towards the annual membership fee, if an attendee joins the Club.
Our featured speaker’s presentation begins at 7:00 PM and is preceded by a wine and cheese reception at 6:30. After the meeting, many attendees enjoy dinner with friends and fellow club members in one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood.

The Church was decorated by Louis C. Tiffany between 1895 and 1925 and is one of the only extant Tiffany interiors in the New York Metropolitan area. Though we meet in one of the meeting rooms, we regularly arrange tours of the sanctuary to view the wonderful windows, lamps and mosaics by Tiffany Studios.
