Kovels on Antiques & Collectibles December 2016 newsletter

Paperweights by antique and contemporary makers were sold at auction in New York and are featured in a sale report in Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles December 2016 newsletter. With varying shapes, intricate colorful designs and unblemished glass, their prices ranged from just under $300 to just over $3,000. Mid-century furniture designed by Vladimir Kagan sold high at New Jersey and Chicago auctions. Kovels’ December newsletter pictures “Floating Curved” and “Cloud” sofas that sold for $20,000 and $10,000 respectively, along with other sleek curved Kagan chairs, table and library steps. And toy motorcycles zoomed off the auction block in Chicago, where collectors paid $60 to $3,600 for lithographed tin models with friction and wind-up action. Examples in Kovels’ latest issue.

All kinds of clocks auctioned in Iowa, where there was something for every type of clock collector. Buyers chimed in to buy advertising, figural, nautical and even tower clocks for prices from the low hundreds to almost $34,000. See the top lot 18th century bracket clock by Hugh Gordon, an Indian Colonial clock maker, along with a variety of other wall and shelf examples in Kovels’ December issue. And 19th-century glass syrup pitchers in pretty patterns and colors were included in a Virginia glass auction. Prices peaked at $1,300 but many could be had for less. Kovels’ December newsletter pictures cranberry, ruby, vaseline and milk glass syrups with their selling prices.
