The Kovels' Top Twenty list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches that took place on its website during March, 2009. Occupied Japan remains on top, proving Kovels.com is one of the web's most popular sources for Occupied Japan collectibles prices.

New to the Kovels' Top Twenty list this month is Milk Glass. Whether it's mass-produced coffee mugs or fancy hand-decorated jars, collectors were on the hunt for prices and information.

Named for its milky white color, milk glass was first made in England during the 1700s. It was popular in the U.S. by the mid-1800s. Items made of milk glass were made by many glass companies such as Cambridge, Duncan & Miller, Fenton, Fostoria, Hobbs Brockunier, Anchor Hocking, Imperial, Indiana Glass, Jeannette, McKee, Tiffin, U.S. Glass, Vallerysthal, and Westmoreland.

This mug was made in the 1960s by the Federal Glass Co. of Columbus, Ohio, and is offered for sale in an online shop for $5. The covered jar with hand-painted violets and gold beading is part of the Con-Cora line, made in the 1940s by the Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co. of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania and is offered in an online shop for $325.
