Prices from a few famous bottle collections that were auctioned are included, as well as examples of prices from single collector auctions of dolls, Victorian glass, lamps with leaded glass shades and Tiffany of all types that drew high prices.
Two generations of Kovels edit the content, so Kovels’ online price guide lists pieces made from the 1700s to as recently as 2000.
