FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND – May 30, 2012 – The June 2012 Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles newsletter is now available in print and online.
Classic cameo jewelry, antique French and German dolls, and all kinds of clocks are featured in Kovels' June newsletter. Terry Kovel reports on a moonstone cameo pendant framed with sapphires that sold for $14,220. Pictures and prices of other cameo pieces made of shell, hardstone and even cast iron are included. June's newsletter also spotlights an auction of high-quality dolls from the early 1800s to the early 1900s. See a French bisque bébé (toddler) doll that cost an excited collector more than $36,000, as well as other special fashion and character dolls that reflect a short history of doll-making. And take the time to read about an assortment of antique clocks—banjo clocks, mantel clocks, even a cuckoo clock—and see some priced examples in Kovels' June newsletter.
In Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles June newsletter you can also learn about pie safes, cabinets with perforated tin panels, and bear's oil, a hair preparation made from bear fat, sold during the mid-1800s in bottles that are very valuable today. Regular monthly features such as the Dictionary of Marks (June features crossed sword marks used by Meissen and other factories), the popular illustrated Collector's Gallery with answers to readers' questions, and the Buyer's Price Guide of recent prices are also included.
