The “Hot” New CollectiblesWritten by Laura Thykeson - Owner of "Ice Originals II - Vintage Collectibles, Music and Jewelry"
Continued from page 1
Of course, Haskell jewelry is and always will be a hot collectible in jewelry market, but consider this. The majority of people collect her items because of artistic appeal, unique designs and quality of piece. Shouldn’t we judge all items we consider purchasing by those same rules, no matter who made them? I think so. I also feel that in long run, as time goes by, those purchases made with heart and eyes will be ones that we grow to love most. Sure, Haskell jewelry is a great collectible, sure to increase in value as time goes by. But who is to say that that little pottery vase made with great form and design by a student in an art pottery studio or class will not someday be worth a small fortune? Plus, as it increases in value, if it does, you will have not paid a small fortune for it, you have admired and loved it since you bought it, and your family may now already arguing over who gets it one of these days when you go to that great auction in sky, regardless of market value! Items we acquire through life, if well loved and worn or displayed with pride and love, develop a value all their own. How do you think collectibles market began? For instance, we have in our family, a beautiful and very large ewer. For years and years, it has been passed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and now my sister and I are determined that this ewer will never leave our family, if we can help it. Turns out that this ewer is a Rookwood or Roseville, and most likely worth a small fortune! Do you think that my Grandmother purchased it because of name? No, she bought it because it was pretty and she loved way it looked. Names meant nothing to her, she just loved look and feel of pottery, and it has been on constant display in our family, in one home or other, because of where it came from, not who made it! To us it is priceless, no amount of money could ever get it away from us. To collector, it has a set price, although it may be a large price, but that is no matter to us. We will never sell it because of memories it holds. I always get a little giggle (not to offend anyone, it’s just my strange sense of humor...) when a dealer lists something as “An important piece of “such and such””. Aren’t they all important in one way or another? They were important to person that made them, or designed them, or cast them, or threw clay, I don’t care if it was a 10 year old child in pottery class, or a ewer like one in our family. I guess what I am trying to say is that all items have value, from one viewpoint or other, and we shouldn’t be so caught up in “name game”. Broaden your horizons on your next browsing trip and always remember that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”!
