Hello

It helps to value items if we can get a visual image of the item, if possible can you send a picture. There seems to be a conflict with sending a picture from your phone, so please upload them to your computer first if you can.

Here are instructions for sending several ways, be sure it is uploaded to your computer, in jpeg form, no larger then 1 mb. 4 x 6 inch works best . When you upload the picture you will be able to see it in this message box before you send it to me. If all else fails you can upload to your face book page and send me the link to the photo page here.

TinyPic is a good place to upload photos. You do have to have the images saved on your computer, but you can upload photos without having to register or give them any information.

1) Go to www.tinypic.com

2) The first thing you'll see is an upload page.3) Click on "Browse".

4) Choose the image you want to upload.

5) Make sure the file type chosen is "Image".

6) In the "Resize" box, choose either "Website/Email" or "Message Board".

7) Click "Upload Now".You'll see a verification box pop up.

Just type in the words it shows and click "upload now". It might take a few minutes to upload.

Once it does, you'll be given 4 different viewing options.Just copy either the addresses in the "URL for E-Mail & IM" or "Direct Link for Layouts" and paste the link into the message box.

If you cannot send one this way send it by email to experts@justanswer.com be sure to put in the subject line "Trying to get pictures to Glenda B" in the body of the message tell them you are trying to get pictures to expert MsDaisy, Glenda B, tell them your name and your user name, also be sure to send it from the email you signed up with JustAnswer with.

Thank you -- Glenda, I've got to get some other things done tonight. My e mail isXXX@XXXXXX.XXX and I will be anxious to hear from you. I'll check back only on my email around 9 and again around 10 tonight.
Needless to say I am not yet helped by this process. Later...
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 3 years ago.

Let's try this,

Is this what yours looks like ? If yours is larger then this one, then it would be valued on todays retail market at approximately 3500.00 to 4000.00.

Here is a description of this one so you can compare to yours: What you have is a Jerusalem School mother-of pearl Orthodox Christian icon. It was a specialized art done by Eastern Christians called Melchites in the Holy Land It was made beginning in the 1830s and into the 20th century. Yours could have been made in the early 20th century. Similar pieces of lesser quality are sold by dealers in Middle Eastern art for $1,800. Yours, with the elaborate frame, could sell for $2,000 or more by a specialty dealer.

 

If you are wanting to sell this I would check with some local Antique Shops in order to see if any would consign it for you. Or you could try to sell it at a larger auction house.

 

 

If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me. And if you would like to use me on any further questions, feel free putting my name ( Glenda ) in your question line, then I will be sure to get it. Look forward to working with you again.

 

Please click accept if I have been of any help to you, (with no further expense to you)

We are only paid by Just Answer after you click accept. Otherwise we are not

compensated for our time.

 

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX Great day.

Glenda
