Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide (Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price List)

Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide (Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price List) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 43rd edition of America's leading price guide on antiques and collectibles, featuring all new actual prices in 700 categories and with more than 2,500 photographs

Kovels' is the only guide that lists actual prices collected from the previous year's sales. It is the best illustrated--with 2,500 full-color photographs--most complete, and easiest-to-use guide to finding the value of what every collector, from the casual hobbyist to the antiques professional, owns or discovers.

Kovels' is the only source for the most current, actual prices. No website, not even the Kovels' own, has this information. The most trusted source in the antiques and collectibles pricing business, Kovels' also has more tips, marks, logos, and photographs of items--in all price ranges--than any other book on the market.

Organized into 700 categories that cover an enormous range of interests, from Pressed Glass, Pottery & Porcelain, and Jewelry to Furniture, Photography, and Sports Memoribilia, this guide includes user-friendly sidebars, cross-references, and expert insider comments and tips throughout, allowing readers to buy, sell, and collect with confidence.

"Kovels' guides are considered the bibles of the field." --The New York Times

Book News Annotation:

Despite the dismal economy, high-quality antiques and collectibles still sell. In this established guide (perhaps earlier editions are now collectible) to buying and selling in the American market, the Kovels list new prices realized from actual sales rather than from estimates or paid experts. The guide features comments on trends, some 775 categories--from A. Walter glass to Zsolnay pottery --with introductory facts about the company; 2,600 color photographs; and care tips. Prices range from 15 cents for a 1950 milk bottle cap to $422,500 for a Tiffany lamp. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
