Ralph and Terry Kovel have been known as experts in antiques and collectibles since their first book was published in 1953. While decorating their first apartment, the pair began their affair with collectibles and antiques by trying to decipher marks on their beloved vintage porcelain pieces purchased from house sales for their new home. And now with over 100 books, special reports, and the country’s longest running syndicated newspaper column discussing topics ranging from identification and care to trends and pricing, the couple is revered as one of the nation’s leading experts in antiques and collectibles (About the Kovels, 2015). Following Ralph’s passing in 2008, Terry, her children, and her staff continued building the legacy her and Ralph grew together (About Kovels Antiques, Inc, 2015).
