The September 2012 “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” newsletter is now available in print and online.
Kovels reports on dozens of cocktail accessories—everything from swizzle sticks and their holders to cocktail shakers—that sold at a recent auction. Priciest item was an Art Deco chrome and glass cocktail tray sold for $688. Collectors bid high for 20th-century Italian art glass at a Chicago auction. Kovels’ September newsletter has pictures and descriptions of some of the best pieces, like a 1930s Carlo Scarpa vase that sold for more than $81,000, and a Paolo Venini vase that brought $72,100. And some practical midcentury modern desks turned up at a couple of summer auctions. Pieces by Paul Frankl, Kai Kristiansen, George Nakashima and others are pictured in this month's issue.
Also in “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” September newsletter are priced examples of lawman badges from the Old West, old and colorful Chinese firecracker labels with brand names like “Home Run,” “Yankee Boy” and “The Wizard” and lots of birds—on etchings by Mark Catesby and figurines by Boehm. Terry Kovel writes about the White Ironstone China Association (WICA) annual convention and shows pieces from their special exhibit. Regular monthly features such as the Dictionary of Marks (September features marks on Boehm Porcelain), the popular illustrated Collector’s Gallery with answers to readers’ questions, and the Buyer’s Price Guide with current prices are also included.
