Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
The Top 20 searches for antiques prices always reflect items "of current interest," but they also indicate interest in learning what and how to sell rather than what to buy. Many collectors are downsizing or "pruning" to make space, earn money or change interests. Older categories of interest, like Occupied Japan, Bavaria, Carnival Glass, Capo-di-Monte, and many English and European 19th-century porcelains, have lost favor with younger collectors. Designs in demand are slick, modern and large--bold graphics or things "of memory," like posters, advertising displays, large colored glass vases, toys and examples of 20th-century inventions like plastic, radios, typewriters and slot machines.
During September 2013 antique enthusiasts were busy researching:
1. Occupied Japan
3. Fenton Glass
8. Milk Glass
10. Carnival Glass
16. Red Wing
19. CT Germany
20. Cash Registers
