Antique collectors in the know have been flocking to Kovels for information about antiques and collectibles and their values since the publication of their first collectors’ price guide. The just-published 46th edition of “Kovels’ Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide” for 2014 is now available at Kovels.com.
Antiques and collectibles can be an inexpensive way to furnish a home. And expressing individuality while reusing and repurposing is a growing trend. That makes flea markets, auctions, shops and shows hot places to shop, and "Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles 2014 Price Guide" is the most complete and user-friendly aid to take along.
Whether buying, selling, valuing, downsizing, or just thinking about assembling a collection, "Kovels’ 2014 Price Guide" is a must-have resource. It’s brimming with prices, photos, facts and tips. Over 700 categories that cover an enormous range of interests make "Kovels' Price Guide" as useful to the novice collector as it is to the experienced appraiser. And it’s all listed in an easy-to-read format, with indexes and cross-references, record prices, hundreds of logos, marks, and factory histories, and without the auction house or museum speak that can be confusing to the average collector. This year's annual guide lists 35,000 current real-market prices and features 2,500 color pictures of items, all sold during the past year.
Looking for the inexpensive, the unusual, the exceptional, the valuable, the whimsical? It's in there too. Prices range from $1 for a saucer made by Harker to $239,000 for a Babe Ruth baseball cap. Discover oddities like a vampire killing kit for $14,800, a cut glass toupee stand from the American Brilliant period for $590, and an iron manhole cover with an image of Ashville, N.C. city hall for $470. Emerging collectibles like modernist jewelry and twentieth-century studio pottery (still some bargains to be had) are listed along with old standbys like toy cars, mechanical banks and political memorabilia (going up in price). All these make "Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide 2014" an essential tool to help buyers and sellers understand the market and make wise decisions.
