Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.

The value will be in the range of-for an original Emily Carr painting- 1million$ each. Saying this, I really doubt that they are genuine, original paintings, more likely they are reproductions. However, I would recommend checking this and going to an appraiser in person to inspect the paintings. If you can provide your city or postal code, I can search for the nearest appraiser in your area.
