My name is***** will be happy to help you.. Brief Explanation of how the appraisers work on Just Answer for you. The appraisers do not work for the just answer site. We come to the site to answer questions customers ask there. We do not send customers any messages through email. We only communicate with a customer in this message box. We do not send emails asking for anything. After we type a communication to you, you get notified by the site we sent you a message. Just like when you send us a response we get notified so we come to this message area to respond to you. We are not at the Just Answer site, we are independent Appraisers who come to the site. .Please Note: I am sorry I am unable to do live conversation per phone. There is data that needs to be obtained, this is always best in written form, in order to give a correct, honest appraisal. .
It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value!.xHere are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,.x

This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me. .x.xSend the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques".x.xxIn the body of the message put , your user name and name.x.xxMake sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with.x.xx.xx Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.x xxGlenda
Is this horse marked? If it is not there is no way to know who made it, where it is from, or when it was made, since we cannot see it in person. If you can send pictures, I can see what I can do online with age and value.
Yes you would think that would give indication of it's origins but, these have been copied for years from original Antique Horses, those that were produced in Germany, Italy, France and other European Countries. They have been produced by numerous factories in America since the 1800's. The one you have appears to be American Made early 20thC, but if not marked there is no way to know an exact age or who made it. If it is marked it would be on the underside or on one of the lower legs.
If it is marked yes that can be looked up in books, that we have. If not then it is valued based on what it is and what has sold in the past 12 months or so, at auction or in antique shops that sell this type item. We have access to paid data bases where we can find this information. A value is not a problem at all, it is always hard to find origin or maker when they are not marked. There is no book or data base that has every horse that has been made and painted listed by what it looks like.
