The antiques market is no different than the stock market or the housing market: it's always changing. Whether you are buying, selling or insuring your collection, you need to keep an eye on the Arts and Crafts market. To help, each week we will post seven different items, their descriptions, and their current values, adding the previous seven to our archives for your reference at any time. Do keep in mind, however, that subtle differences, especially in condition, can drastically impact the value of any antique. Before making any major decision, I always recommend you consult a professional appraiser. Good Luck!
