Top Collectible, Antiques & Art Listings for April 2011

by Griff on May 19, 2011

in Top Collectibles On eBay

April was a busy month for the Antiques and Collectibles categories on eBay. Highlighted below are examples from the hundreds of thousands of sold items for the month. As always, we’ve included a mix of results from both Fixed Price and Auction-style listings (bidding activity for these examples was especially robust!)

One listing of special interest : The set of 120 Kodachrome slides from a family in Santa Barbara CA in the late 1940′s. I included them here to show the high demand by collectors for slides and photos of everyday life from the 20th century. I believe these generated high interest due to the quality of the composition as well as the content, which provided a wonderful window into the life of one family right after WWII. Keep an eye out for similar examples in your treasure hunting.

All items are vetted for positive sale (item paid for, delivered and not returned). This is the reason why it takes until mid month to post the previous month’s list, by the way.

I have inherited my father’s antique collection of china, silver, original oil artwork and furniture. I would be interested in knowing how to go about it. I also have an original signed William Wyld painting which is supposed to be very valuable. I have a origianal painting by Carl Van Loo of Queen Marie Lachinska of Poland and he painted two portarits of Royalty and the Louvre has the other.
