Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) May 01, 2017
Antique globes that once brought heaven and earth into Victorian parlors are featured in a sale report in Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles May 2017 newsletter. Find pictures and prices of table, pocket and novelty globes – even a planetarium – that auctioned in New Orleans, where prices peaked at nearly $3,000. Buffalo Pottery made tableware for homes, restaurants, railroads and hotels. Kovels’ May newsletter pictures examples of Buffalo pottery auctioned in Virginia, including colorful and amusing pieces from the Deldare line that pictured scenes from English literature and everyday village life. Match safes are a hot collecting category and Kovels’ latest issue reports on a collection of 19th and early 20th century match safes sold in Pennsylvania. Pocket-sized and lightweight, many advertised products, were souvenirs, or had nature themes like the mixed metal bird that brought almost $2,000 and the sterling silver alligator that went for almost $200.
Fashion goes in cycles and designer dresses made five to ten years ago are seeing a resurgence in popularity. Kovels’ newsletter pictures dresses that auctioned in Chicago where bidders found bargains by famous designers, perfect for current spring and summer wear. And midcentury modern storage furniture can fit nicely into today’s lifestyles. Buyers looking for modular cabinets and known designers bid on pieces by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Paul McCobb and others at a Chicago auction. Kovels’ May newsletter features examples. Most sold for under $2,000.
