Here are some examples of the most popular and in-demand Thanksgiving pieces and collectible tableware according to the Kovels:
Large turkey figurines and turkey-shaped covered glass bowls. Many are being reproduced today but the originals date back to the 1930s.

Homemade decorations of paper turkeys and Pilgrim hats saved from past generations.
