My name is ***** *****. I found 2 Glenn Bastian paintings in

Customer Question

Customer: Hi...my name is ***** *****. I found 2 Glenn Bastian paintings in some things of my Mother's. One is called "Flowers in the window"which is about 4.5" x 6.5". The other is called "Bowl of flowers" and measures about 3.5' x 4.5". The measurements are the frame sizes. They are definitely actual paintings. Both have a mall piece of paper on the back with his name, the title and some numbers in actual handwriting, appearing to possibly be written with a fountain pen. I'm just wondering if these are worth anything?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Such as?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Antiques Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes, though I'm not sure I want to pay that much
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello,

Your miniature, or jewel size, floral still life paintings by Ohio artist, Glenn Franklin Bastian (1890-1966) carry auction estimates of $75 - $150 on today's market. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $300 each.
