Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) April 06, 2017
Antiques and collectibles searches on the website Kovels.com are often due to news of an interesting collection, a record price, or an amazing find that sends collectors off to do research. Pottery, porcelain, glass, and metals like silver, pewter, brass and copper are always popular with collectors and frequently searched. The Kovels have fine-tuned their search results for the first quarter 2017 and here are the 10 of the most searched-for antiques and collectibles categories that creating interest among collectors and dealers.
1. Fenton (Pictured is a Fenton Blackberry Open Edge bowl. Price: $35.)
2. Depression glass
9. Occupied Japan
The one that causes the most confusion is Capo-di-Monte. A very famous name in Italian porcelain, it was first used for porcelain made in Naples, Italy, from 1743 to 1759 and then in Spain until 1821. The name, molds, and marks were then bought and used by another company. Today, the Capo-di-Monte name and mark are used on cheaper pieces made in Italy, not by the original old companies. This causes confusion for new collectors. Searches show prices for old and new pieces.
