Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Pictures, descriptions and prices of pricey miniature residences made from the 1880s to the 1920s are featured in “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” July 2014 newsletter. A buyer paid $805 for a gabled Victorian doll’s farmhouse at the Pennsylvania auction where close to 50 antique dollhouses from a famous private collection were sold. A large New York City collection of Mexican silver was sold at a Dallas auction and featured jewelry by famous 20th-century Mexican silversmiths. Necklaces, bracelets and pins by Margot de Taxco, Fred Davis, William Spratling and others are pictured with selling prices and makers’ marks in Kovels’ July newsletter. And fans of Arts and Crafts furniture who can’t afford a costly piece by Gustav Stickley will enjoy learning about Charles Limbert. He made furniture in the same style as Stickley and it sells for less money. Kovels’ offers pictures, descriptions and prices of Limbert tables, chairs and bookcases that auctioned for prices ranging from $143 to $8,500.
Kovels’ latest newsletter spills the beans about coffee collectibles. More than a hundred coffee tins, bins, signs and grinders sold at a recent Michigan auction and colorful examples are pictured in July’s issue. “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” also continues to celebrate its 40th year of publication with a sale report featuring early cameras sold in Germany and old photos sold in New York City.

July’s Buyer’s Price Guide has current prices of 50 antiques and collectibles and also shows what’s up and what’s down by comparing prices with those from the July 1975 newsletter.
