Hello, my name is Glenda.
It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value! .Here are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,.
If you do not see the blue button that states attach file at the bottom of your page here are instructions to upload images !.Click the link: for instructions on uploading images .http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert . Or you may use this method:.Go to www.imgur.com.click on Computer.Select the picture file from the box that pops up..Hit open..Click on Start Upload.And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx) and paste it here..Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me. .Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques"..In the body of the message put , your user name and name..Make 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. . 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..Glenda
It is a Soldier, missing his Lance, it appears, or it could be a flag he was holding. Do you think the statue was made in the 1800's or that it depicts the soldiers from that time? It could have been produced in the 20thC as a depiction of a French Soldier.
The 20th C started in the 1900. Are you mistaken thinking I meant 21st C, . I did not mean she purchased as being made in the 50-60's. Even though it is possible it could have been. There are thousands and thousands of fake antiques out there, we see these on a daily basis. In private practice and on here. I have been in this business for over 45 years, and have been appraising that long. So yes it is very possible this was produced later then the early 1900's and just made to look old. It happens every day.
But, I can tell from the manner in which you speak to me that you will not believe anything I tell you. By the way, I to am educated. I am opting out of this, maybe someone else will try to help you.
