if it is possible I rather speak with you my cell# XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX. thank you sonia

AppraiserAlan AOA CA :
I am sorry but all contact must be kept here. Thank you for your patience while I conducted my research and prepared your answer. I was able to find artist info and estimate a market value range for you based on recent sales of qualified comparable items and hope this will answer all your questions. From experience and research I can tell you that there is little information out there for Otto Bauer. However I was able to find that he was an early 20th century artist known for painting with a medium choice of Oil on canvas. There was only one of his pieces at auction recently enough to be considered a comparable and it did not sell. It had an estimate of $353.
Searching hundreds of auction houses records provided an excellent amount of recent sales results for similar pieces with the majority indicating your otto neubauer piece has a current market value of $100 - $200. The price you are able to sell for may vary depending on venue, condition, market variances, and more. Although this is the average amount today, there have been higher sales in the past indicating most markets are down at the moment.
I would recommend a starting asking price of $225
This way you can reduce accordingly if necessary because Market Value represents what someone was willing to pay for an asset, not the amount it was offered for. If this isn't what you would like, please let me know and I can provide you with Insurance value.
I hope this is the information you were looking for! If not, or you would like to know more, please reply. If I have taken care of all your needs, please make sure to rate my answer for my compensation and to close out the question.
I try to always provide Excellent Service, so if you have any other items please request me by name in a new question and I will get with you there as soon as possible.
Thank you very much!
