The world is full of beautiful things: paintings, sculpture, glass works, textiles, figurines, jewelry and other items. Many people collect such things, which are often known as fine arts. However, the category is not as straightforward as it seems. Is the china a bride receives for her wedding a fine art that should be scheduled on the homeowners policy? What about baseball cards? Are they fine arts or collectibles, and should they be added to a homeowners schedule?
