I hope your were able to get help from customer support?

I have researched your Chinese shell art four panels the four seasons.

I found they are probably early to mid-20thC.

From my research, I was able to determine the retail art gallery value would be about $1020 Canadian dollars.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
