Kovels.com's free price list of over 600,000 prices for antiques and collectibles is visited by hundreds of thousands of people each month. This is the list of the top 20 hot items in January 2008. Collectors and dealers look for prices of wanted items, items they are considering buying or selling, and information to use as a guide in financial matters like wills or insurance. And some just want to see old prices to learn how much their antiques have increased in value--kind of like a Dow Jones guide to the market. January's "top" list is:

  1. Spatterware
  2. Coca-Cola
  3. Stove
  4. Capo-di-Monte
  5. World War II
  6. Jewelry
  7. Occupied Japan
  8. Silverplate
  9. Furniture
  10. Doll
  11. Lladro
  12. Lighter
  13. Knife
  14. Hutschenreuther
  15. Clock
  16. Royal Bayreuth
  17. Nippon
  18. Royal Dux
  19. Rosenthal
  20. Cookie jar

There are a few new categories on this month's top 20 list, including Spatterware, appearing for the first time at number 1 and Hutschenreuther at number 14. Stoves are still in the top 5 at number 3 but are starting to slip as the winter drags on. Jewelry also stayed high on the list.
