I am having an estate sale and there are two original

Customer Question

I am having an estate sale and there are two original watercolors by Pwahwa. They are titled Chinese Horse with Groom. I would like to know the approximate value so that I might know if it would be better for the family to put these through the estate sale or if it might be more beneficial for them to contact one of the higher end auction houses.
I would appreciate any help you might offer

Here are photos of the two pictures. The third image is certificate on the back of each. The sale is Sept 19 so I'm really pushed for my answer. I apologize for the rush and appreciate your help.

Hi,

Thank you for the photos. These would sell at auction for $100-200 each. Here is a link to an auction house that sold a pair by the same artist in 2013 for $160. https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/16277682_pr-chen-baohua-chinese-watercolor-paintings

Thank you,
