The Antiques and Collectables | Pricing and Reference Guide
  About Us  
After eleven years of development by our staff, now delivers what every collector, dealer, and appraiser has always needed... Current Reference and Prices based on Condition! is the originator of the "on-line" Antiques and Collectibles Price guide. We ar growing as fast as we can to become the largest reference source available for descriptions, photographs, and prices, but we haven't listed everything so please don't expect to find it all.

In addition, we are doing our best to report on what is being reproduced and/or faked. We are making every effort to answer the "Why is this not original?" question. Our selection of photographs and markings will help you determine the originality of objects we have listed. is only a reference and price guide, selling nothing but knowledge and information. We are not in competition with sellers or auction houses but here to assist you in determining the authenticity and current condition-based price.

Our home office staff over 80 years of collecting experience. Key personnel have written books and magazine articles published in three countries. The work experience of our staff includes: time with national museums, appraisals and market research. This has enabled our staff to create a detailed reference tool for the collector instead of the usual generic descriptions.

This information has been assembled by collectors, for collectors. As you explore the site, you will be impressed with the hours of research effort that have been invested in this project.
