What size is this?

Expert:  Nora replied 6 months ago.

Hi,

Vintage Windsor Art Abstracts with order numbers have decorative wall art value, however they do not have value in terms of fine art investments like a Warhol or Picasso. Pastels with stucco were used primarily in the 1980's and Windsor Art produced wall art for homes and businesses in an assembly line type setting. Depending on the size, these can realistically sell for $100 - $400 for the pair on today's market. They may be priced higher at retail as any owner can place any asking price on an item they own.

Bear in mind that an ‘asking price’ is one that has not been sold and a true sale value is based on actual past documented sale records.

Feel free to add images at your convenience, there is not an additional charge for photos here.

After researching Art Data Bases, my Art Books, and sites, I found that the Windsor

Art Abstract Painting with the number cp 61402 has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $700.00-850.00 depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. They are no longer in business. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally.
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Rating of the answer is for my professionalism in my communications with you.

It is not based on the value of an item, which appraisers have no control over, or any site issues ( technical or otherwise) that may occur while using the site.

As appraisers we do not work for the Just Answer Site. After being verified we are allowed to come to the site to answer customer's questions
.
The only way we are compensated for our time, is by the rating you give. Clicking one of the stars or smiley faces is very much appreciated. If you find you have a problem being able to rate me, please let me know.

It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you would like to ask me about, just start a new question addressed to "Glenda" it would be my pleasure to help you.
