Hi my name is Glenda,Thank you for choosing us for your Appraisal needs.
This is part of a set of Vegetables from the 70's-early 80's. They would hang on the wall. There was Corn, Tomatoes, Beans, Carrots, Lemons, Apples and other fruits and vegetables, the holes in the back used to have a hanger through it. They were produced in Italy and imported to be sold in Department Stores and Specialty stores.

The Corn has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $10.00-12.50 each, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )
If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from. You can sell in your local area or a larger city near you with Craigslist, it is free, and when they item sells the buyer picks it up.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias, which is on the same scale of Rubylane.
There is Amazon , ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer or antique or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
