Kovelsâ€™ Know Your Collectibles
By Ralph & Terry Kovel
A Classic Guide for Both Beginning & Experienced Collectors
Kovels' Know Your Collectibles is the ultimate guide to "young antiques" â€” collectibles less than one hundred years old.
With hundreds of photographs and line drawings, in-depth text, several glossaries, and an extensive subject-by-subject bibliography, this book provides important information you cannot find anywhere else.
Each chapter of Kovels' Know Your Collectibles begins with general advice on how to locate, preserve, and protect your collectibles. The chapters cover a wide variety of objects, including ceramics, dinnerware and art pottery, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, lamps, clocks, toys, paper, tins, advertising material, and old store collectibles.
The Kovels tell you how to recognize the value and improve the condition of your collectibles. They provide a wealth of information about individual manufacturers and designers, patterns, styles, artists' marks, and historic curiosities.
