News-Antique.com - Apr 05,2011 - CLEVELAND – “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles” April 2011 issue is now available in print and online. The monthly newsletter has something for everyone.
More than 30 Hummel figurines sold at a winter Conestoga auction. Prices aren't what they used to be, but they still attract collectors. Learn more about the German figurines in Kovels’ April newsletter.
Vladimir Kagan furniture made in the 1950s attracts high prices at auction. Read about Kagan and see some of his distinctive designs that recently sold at Rago. And while you're in a "fifties" frame of mind, you can also see pictures and prices of some George Nelson clocks that sold at the same auction.
A high roller paid over $3,000 for a 1920s gaffed, or "fixed," roulette-like game at a Chicago auction, where more than 50 cheating devices sold. Tricks and prices are revealed in the April Kovels' newsletter.
A bidder paid $18,400 for a cigar tin picturing baseball players. See other colorful baseball-themed tins that sold at two recent Morphy auctions in the April issue.
Kovels’ newsletter also reports on jade jewelry that sold at a winter Michaan's auction, and on the sale of some antique and vintage sterling silver tea and coffee services that sold for less than the price of a new sterling set. Regular monthly features—the Dictionary of Marks (April features marks found on copper and brass), the popular Collector’s Gallery with answers to readers' questions, and the Buyer’s Price Guide of recent prices—are also included.
With its mixture of pictures, prices, tips and expert advice on what’s hot in the market, the 12-page, color-illustrated Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles newsletter has something for both beginning and experienced collectors.
