The 12-page, color-illustrated, monthly newsletter is packed with information that will help collectors recognize the value of treasures found at flea markets, antique shows, auctions, garage sales, and online auction sites. Subscribers can choose a print edition or an online digital edition. Both are available at the Kovels' website, http://www.Kovels.com. Here are this month's featured stories:
Beautiful Baby Dolls – Several dolls with realistic baby bodies and features were offered at a recent auction and they're a lot more valuable now than a century ago. More about antique and vintage baby dolls and their makers' marks can be found in the Kovels' August newsletter.
Weller Pottery Garden Dogs and Frogs – An eccentric "Pop Eye" pottery puppy wagged its way out of an Ohio auction for $288. It was one of several Weller animals "adopted" at the sale. The Kovels plant more fun and facts about Weller Garden Ware in this month's newsletter.
Indian Jewelry of the Southwest – More than 30 pieces of handmade American Indian jewelry, mostly from the 1920s and 30s sold at a recent auction in Boston. Read about quality pieces in the August newsletter.
Antique Chests – An antique chest can dress up a room and cost a lot less than a new one. Kovels' August newsletter reports on American and European examples that sold recently at auction.
Toleware – Nearly two dozen 19th-century pieces of American toleware sold at an Ohio auction with prices ranging from $118 to $4,700. A selection of pictures and selling prices is included in Kovels' August newsletter.
Sterling Silver Salts – Salt dishes can be found in glass, pottery and metal. Some elaborate ones in sterling silver sold recently in Dallas. Find some pictured in the August newsletter.
