New to the Kovels' Top Twenty list this month is Bossons. W.H. Bossons, Ltd., operated in Congleton, England from 1946 to 1996. Collectors have been on the hunt for information and prices on their character wall masks (heads), plaques, figurines and other decorative pieces.
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 in the top 20, it doesn't mean it is unpopular or that there isn't a demand for it. It only means that in May there was less interest in finding prices for that item.
Terry Kovel will discuss the content of this release or any other antiques and collectibles topics with accredited media. Pictures available. Contact pr@Kovels.com
