Hi,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.

If you've begun checking, then you know that different figurines have different values on today's market. Also, since they are a multiple, not one of a kind objects, those in perfect condition with original boxes and certificates, command the highest prices.

Since you have 38 of them, may I suggest that you purchase a subscription, which will allow you to post unlimited questions at no additional charge? We can then divide them up in groups of three or so, and I can research their current values for you.

If you'd like to do that, please let me know, and we can begin with the first three. You'll need to contact Customer Service to purchase the subscription. Then all you need to do, if you want me to answer all your questions, is use my first name as the first word in each of your questions.

I do not have boxes or certificates for the figurines. They are in perfect condition however and are over 40 years old at least - maybe older.
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for this information. Do you want to begin with the first three? If you do, I'll need to know their item numbers or names.

Thank you.

Afternoon Tea was in production from 1935 until 1982. If it is in perfect condition, its current fair market value is approximately $200.

Autumn Breezes - the figure you have is Style 1, made between 1939 and 1976. If it is in perfect condition, its current fair market value is approximately $175.

Chloe was made from 1932 - 1945. if it is in perfect condition its current fair market value is approximately $275.
