The Top 20 Searches for Antiques and Collectibles at Kovels.com for September 2007 With over 600,000 antiques and collectibles in its online price guide, Kovels.com today released its top 20 list of the most popular searches for September 2007.
News-Antique.com - Oct 04,2007 - Cleveland, Ohio - October 04, 2007 - Kovels.com (http://www.kovels.com), the Web's largest free price guide for antiques and collectibles, today released its list of the top 20 searches for September. The Kovels' top 20 list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches that took place on its website during the month of September 2007.
People use price guides for a number of reasons, usually to determine the value of an item that they own. If an item isn't listed on the top 20 list, it doesn't mean it is unpopular or that there isn't a demand for it. It only means that in September there was less interest in finding prices for that item.
1. Jewelry (No movement); 2. Stoves (Up from #4); 3. World War II (Up from #6); 4. Furniture (Up from #5); 5. Coca-Cola (Down from #3); 6. Occupied Japan (Up from #7); 7. Silverplate (Up from #8); 8. Lighters (Up from #10); 9. Cookie Jars (No movement); 10. Capo-Di-Monte (Not listed last month); 11. Planters Peanuts (Not listed last month); 12. Lladro (Up from #15); 13. Pottery (Up from #20); 14. Knife (Up from #17); 15. Painting (Down from #11); 16. Phonograph (Not listed last month); 17. Royal Bayreuth (Not listed last month); 18. Royal Dux (Not listed last month); 19. Clocks (Down from #16); 20. Dolls (Down from #14).
There are five new categories on the September list that were not included in the August list. Also note the surge in World War II searches. This is probably due to Ken Burns' new epic documentary "The War" which has been appearing on PBS stations across the U.S. in recent weeks.
The Kovels' "Top 20" list of antiques and collectibles has been published monthly since 2002 and is offered by Kovels.com as a service for collectors. Accredited media interested in discussing the content of this release or any topics related to antiques and collectibles are encouraged to contact the Kovels to schedule an interview.
