Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
The March 2013 “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” newsletter is now available in print and online.
Vintage Barbie dolls come to life in a “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” sale report—part of the just-published March 2013 issue. More than two dozen early Barbie dolls in different ensembles sold at an Ohio auction, where prices ranged from $90 to over $500. Costume jewelry designed by Coco Chanel auctioned recently in Detroit. See pictures and prices of earrings, necklaces and pins, some decorated with Chanel’s “CC” logo. Then look ahead to spring and outdoor living as Kovels’ March issue reports on garden furniture sets and accent pieces that sold at a winter auction in North Carolina. Sets of iron furniture that included settees or love seats, chairs and tables sold for $472 to just over $2,000. Cast iron and cast concrete figures and urns were also included in the sale. Descriptions and selling prices can be found in Kovels’ March newsletter.
High quality silver continues to attract buyers and several silver centerpiece bowls by American and British silver companies that sold recently in North Carolina are also featured. And learn about the history and lesser-known colors of Wedgwood jasperware that excited bidders at a winter auction in Boston. Kovels’ March newsletter also has an illustrated review of record prices set during 2012. Some highlights—a Babe Ruth game-worn jersey that sold for $4,400,000, a Batman No. 1 comic book that sold for $850,000, and a toy paddlewheel boat with a clockwork mechanism that sold for $247,000.
Regular monthly features are here, too—March’s Dictionary of Marks lists marks on cutlery and knives, the popular illustrated Collector’s Gallery has answers to readers’ questions about an old Abendroth stove, a set of musician figurines made of “Syroco,” a commemorative cigarette lighter with an image of Queen Victoria and a ceramic owl tobacco jar, and the Buyer’s Price Guide lists current prices of dozens of antiques and collectibles.
