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.
